Welcome to AFJROTC
Hello, my name is MSgt Ricker, I served 22yrs in the United States Air Force. Before entering the USAF I married my High School Sweetheart. We both originate from Greeneville, TN. We have two sons; Alan and Zachary. My first assignment was at Eielson AFB, AK where I performed my duties as an Aerospace Ground Equipment Journeyman, with the 354 MXS. While there I attended Survival School, enjoyed hunting and fishing and the great outdoors and drove back to the lower 48 via the ALCAN Highway. We then moved to McGuire AFB, NJ and I began to explore the world by flying on KC-10’s, C-141’s, C-5's, C-17's and C-130’s. The USAF gave me free rides to Italy, England, Iceland, Newfoundland, Germany, Spain, France, Ireland, Azores, England, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates. We did a self-move to Moody AFB, GA where I was assigned to the 347th Rescue Wing, deploying to Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I put in to become an FTD Instructor at 4th FW Seymour-Johnson AFB, NC where I taught multiple students in the operation, troubleshooting, installation, and repair of Aerospace Ground Equipment (AGE). There I received two Community College of the Air Force Diploma’s, Occupational Instructor Certificate, and a Bachelor of Applied Science in History from the University of Mount Olive. I then applied to become a Professional Military Instructor at Kadena AFB, Japan’s Erwin PME Center, where I taught at both the Non-Commissioned Officer Academy and Airmen Leadership School under the 18th Wing. While there I finished my Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies through Piedmont International University. It was after this assignment that I made my way to Sportsman’s Paradise and was stationed at 2 BW Barksdale AFB, LA. While here I was the NCOIC of the MHU-196/M munitions trailer shop and the 2 MXG Security Manager/PRP Monitor. Upon my retirement from the USAF on 31 July 2013, I was hired as an AFJROTC Instructor for Parkway High School on 1 August, 2013. I’ve truly been blessed to become part of the staff/family at Parkway H.S. and the South Bossier Community. It is a great honor and privilege to play a small part in your child's development into adulthood. I look forward to the upcoming 2016-17 school year and the many adventures at hand.
