My name is Peter Kuykendall. I’m a crew chief at Scott AFB Fire Department in Illinois. I’m just look at job opportunities outside of the DoD potentially in the St Louis are or Chicago.
I’ve been a firefighter in Montana, Guam and now Illinois!
Hey Peter,

Thanks for introducing yourself. Tell us more about your time in Guam and if you have any photos to share that would be awesome!

Take care.

Eric

I was on Guam for 2 years and gained a lot of good knowledge over there! It was hot all the time obviously but dealt with almost every aircraft the military has!
