Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My grandfather, Harvey McCoy Sr., had the most positive influence on my life. As a proud father of six, he taught me the true meaning of family and he always stressed the importance of having a particular balance with both your family and the military.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to either become a chief master sergeant before retiring or commission.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Osan Air Base, Korea, was the most interesting place I've traveled to. I enjoyed the culture and food in the country. Traveling while in South Korea was also great.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
"Quiet Strength," by Tony Dungy is my favorite book. This book specifically displays the leadership qualities that are needed for most leaders.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Muhammad Ali. I think that he stood for what he believed in while facing adversity through the years. More than anything, he had supreme confidence, which I believe is important for everyone.
