Whitewater grad completes basic training

Air Force Airman 1st Class Rachel R. Klaassen recently graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, and military customs and courtesies, performed drill and ceremony marches, and received physical training, rifle marksmanship, field training exercises, and special training in human relations.

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

She is the daughter of Darryl Klaassen of Whitewater and is a 2004 graduate of Fredric Remington High School, Whitewater.
