You never know who you'll meet or what you'll see walking around Scott AFB! Kirk Poore is a contractor with U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) who often spends his lunch hour outside the headquarters practicing the violin. He started playing only four years ago at the age of 54. He said he plays outside because he's not very good and doesn't want to disturb anyone. "Out here, the only one I disturb is the guy mowing the lawn, and he just goes around me."
Tech. Sgt. promotion list will be posted July 19 at 8 a.m. Best of luck to all those who tested! 🤞
