  • Airman gives insight into balancing civilian and Guard job

    I pulled up to the parking lot of the Torrington police station which is about eighty miles northeast of Cheyenne near the Nebraska border. It is an understated brown building which shares its location with city hall. Over the glass doors in block letters reads “police station.” Officer Rebekah Miller is waiting for me in front of the doors to the station. She is wearing a hat with the Torrington police patch above the brim, which slightly shades her eyes. Her black uniform adorns her patrolman shield, Torrington police patch, radio and utility belt which carries her weapon and handcuffs. It is a stark contrast to the Airman battle uniform she wears on the weekend when she is working as a command post specialist. We exchange greetings and enter the building as she starts an informal tour of her department.
