What are your plans for the holidays?

Unit: 452 AMDS
Hometown: Pasadena, Calif.
Hobbies: Music and painting

I will be spending time with my family and doing some local travel to some of the beautiful parks in the area. I will possibly go to the mountains as well. The holidays are a time to celebrate all the wonderful things our families do for us, and I’m very thankful for mine.

Hometown: Yigo, Guam
Hobbies: Basketball, Soccer, Spear Fishing, Hiking and Barbecuing

I intend on spending all of my holiday time with family and friends. We are preparing for big feasts on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. We might make it to the mountains for some snowboarding and practice making snow angels. Also, I wish my mom was here, but I know she is watching from above.  I would like to wish everyone the best, during the holidays.

Sr. Airman Jemea Sherman

Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
Hobbies: Shopping, Dancing and Traveling

For the upcoming holidays, I’m going to be spending it with my family. Nothing too fancy. My sisters and I will get up early to get a head start on the food. I will be doing most of the work since I’m the best cook. We’ll probably spend the day sitting around talking and catching up until it’s time to eat. Then after dinner, I’ll have to get ready for work and spend the rest of the evening there. I’m excited about all of the left-overs and hanging out with my twin sister, who I only get to see twice a year.
