HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. --
During the regular 49th Wing staff meetings, Airmen get the chance to introduce themselves to wing leadership, here. This allows commanders and chiefs across base to meet one of the many Airmen accomplishing the mission each day.
Staff Sgt. Daniel Bartolome hails from Oahu, Hawaii and is part of the 49th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron as an aircraft armament systems technician.
When Bartolome is not working at the 49th AMXS, he is spending time with his loved ones.
“I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters the most. Regardless of where we are or what we’re doing, being with them is what matters most to me,” Bartolome said. “In my personal time I prefer being outdoors. Since 2010, I’ve been an avid cyclist. More recently, I began ground school to obtain my private pilot license.”
Before joining the Air Force, Bartolome was attending the University of Hawaii for five years while working at a hotel for the entirety of his college career.
“I have always had the intention of being a military aviator,” he said. “Whether it was in the Air Force or Navy, I wanted to fly. I joined the Air Force and continued to pursue that dream. I have finished my bachelor’s degree and am now working on my masters.”
Bartolomes future career plans include applying for officer training school as a pilot candidate.
“In my short 4-year career, I’ve been fortunate enough to experience a number of unique opportunities,” says Bartolome. “Whether it’s being an inspiration for my daughters or serving those I have the pleasure of coming into contact with, the Air Force provides the ideal avenue to cultivate the growth and development of both our organization and the community.”
