DULUTH, Minn. -- Rank and Name: Staff Sergeant Bryce Hebert

Duty Title: Electrical & Environmental Technician

Hometown: Mahtowa, Minnesota

Why is serving in the Minnesota National Guard important to you?  My mother and uncles were both in the military and I hoped one day I would be able to do the same. It's great to be a part of something that is bigger than myself and am so thankful to be serving my country.

What military moment or accomplishment are you most proud of?  Being awarded as the top graduate and distinguished graduate for Airman Leadership class 16-2.

What is your favorite part of your job?  Digging in and getting my hands dirty while working on issues with the F-16s. Finding and fixing the problem with a jet and then ultimately watching it take off to do its mission.

What inspires you?  Watching the pilots prep their plane, get inside, start the engine, taxi, and take off. The idea of possibly being able to do that in the future inspires me.

What are your future goals?  Earning a 4-year degree from the University of Minnesota Duluth and becoming an F-16 pilot for the 148th Fighter Wing.

What is your favorite part of being a member of the 148th Fighter Wing?  The 148th Fighter Wing is one big family in which everyone looks out for one another.
