A 2019 graduate of Piedra Vista High School has completed an early-career milestone. U.S. Air Force Airman Tracy J. Atwood graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, in 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," the Air Force said Sept. 30 in a press release.

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