An Air Force Mechanic(01:38)
Airman 1st Class Laura Lund talks about working as a aircraft engine mechanic at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. She enjoys the camaraderie that comes with serving in the Military, and the work is a good fit for her skills.
Lund did well on the mechanical comprehension portion of her ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). The ASVAB is designed to help young adults discover which careers fit their skills. Several factors help determine an individual's military career, including ASVAB scores, training and the needs of the Military at the time of enlistment.
