Airman 1st Class Matthew Scott Santino, 22nd Medical Operation Squadron aerospace medical services technician, has spent half of his two years in the Air Force at McConnell. The Seattle, Wash., native's hobbies include listening to music, meeting new people and making friends.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My fellow Air Force peers, with their fantastic attitudes and drives to do well in their career fields. They make for a terrific learning environment, and provide a foundation to do a great job at work on a daily basis.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to experience everything there is to learn about the military lifestyle, and help as many people as I can both locally and overseas. I want to feel like I'm making a difference, and I know with the help of the military and its challenges, I can definitely accomplish this.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place I have traveled to is St Louis, Mo., because the people and culture there are so vast in comparison to anywhere I've been. It makes one feel at home no matter what station you are in life.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite movie is "Gladiator." The star role of the film is a truly honorable and noble man. Even though it is fiction, the character is someone I've always had a deep respect for as far as his morals and what he holds important in life.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I cannot simply choose just one person I'd like to meet. I would like to meet all of those who have served in a position with the military special forces because they sacrifice so much of themselves to make life better for those around them.
