Topic - Jesus Yanez
Staff Sgt. Jesus Yanez could arguably be called an American Spartan for the depth and breadth of his military service. It's a rarity, but Sgt. Yanez has served honorably in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.
"Regardless of branch of service, everyone always works together to get the job done," Sgt. Yanez told the Air Force of his military career. "I have also learned that anywhere you go, if you take care of the people below you, they will take care of you. [...] The military has given me so much, and I help [young Airmen] understand that if you give 100 percent to the military, it will give 100 percent back to you."
