Blakeley graduates from basic training

Air Force Airman Devin G. Blakeley graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

The airman 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 in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Blakely is the son of Tyffany Wilson of Chicago, and brother of Kirsten Hallock of DeKalb. He is a 2011 graduate of Indian Creek High School, Shabbona.
