Hero of the Week


Aaron Shifflett, USAF

Aaron was nominated by his friend Daniel

I’ve known Aaron for 10 years now and he is a dedicated Airman and family man. He is the single father of a son and twin girls and he has managed to juggle 4 deployments while raising his kids over the years. Aaron has always been an inspiration to me personally. He embodies the Air Force core values and is a warm and loving father.
