IN UNIFORM: DeKalb native completes basic training in Texas

Air Force Airman Monique Silva graduated from basic military training recently at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Silva completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness and basic warfare principles and skills.

Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate’s degree in applied science through the Community College of the Air Force.

Silva is the granddaughter of Antonia Silva of El Paso, Texas, and daughter of Anna Hodges of DeKalb.
