Mom, daughter reunite at mom's BMT graduation

Airman Basic Kimberly Moore, right, hugs her daughter, Trainee Autumn Bonner, for the first time in nearly eight weeks at Moore’s Basic Military Training graduation at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, Nov. 12, 2020. The mother and daughter are from Elgin, Oklahoma. Moore, who is in the Air Force Reserve, graduated with the 326th Training Squadron and will now attend technical training at Sheppard AFB, Texas, to be an aerospace ground equipment technician. “My decision to join came long before hers,” said Moore, 38. “I wanted to seek opportunities and do something different. I learned a lot about myself.” Bonner, 18, is a member of the 321st Training Squadron; she will begin security forces training after she graduates BMT in December. She received special permission to see her mother graduate. Bonner said it was an emotional day and she was very proud of her mother. (U.S. Air Force photo by Annette Crawford)
