Airman 1st Class Dennis Malone, 22nd Contracting Construction Flight contract administrator, has been in the Air Force for two years. McConnell is his first duty station and his hobbies include spending time with his wife, biking, kiting and gaming.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
As weird as it sounds, the most influential person in my life is the bus driver I had from kindergarten all the way through high school. His name is Larry Eason. He has always been great at giving advice and pointing me in the right direction when I needed it most. Without some of the bits of wisdom I received from him over the years, I may not be where I am today. Every time I go home, even if it's just for a couple days, we still make time to get together and go out for breakfast.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force Career?
I have a few things I would like to accomplish. First, I want to get my college degree. Second, I would like to make staff sergeant before this enlistment is up. As of right now, I plan on being a career Airman, so one of my long term goals would be to retire as a senior master sergeant or chief master sergeant.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Amsterdam. I have been there four times and would like to go there again someday. The architecture and old buildings are so amazing. There are also a lot of museums that are extremely interesting. My favorite thing would have to be all of the street performers. It seems like everywhere you go, someone is doing some sort of entertainment on the street.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite movie would have to be "Forrest Gump." It's just a really great story about a guy who goes through life without much of anything, but everything ends up working out for him in the end.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet Joe Rogan. I have watched a lot of his standup acts and interviews. He just seems like a very interesting person to meet and hangout with.
