Former Buds 131

“Airman Vision started back in 2012 when Kyle Gott was looking to join the Air Force. The channel was originally named Kyle Gott. From 2012 to 2019 Kyle documented his life and experience of a 6-year enlistment in the Air Force. In August of 2019, the channel was rebranded to Airman Vision to showcase a more broad concept of the Air Force. This channel will consist of the view of the Air Force from several Airmen’s perspectives. Each video will be the view of a specific Airman who is currently serving or who has priorly served. This channel has grown to be more than just Kyle Gott and that is why he decided to rebrand. It isn’t about Kyle Gott, it’s about helping people join the Air Force and have the best experience possible.”
“YOU WANT MOTIVATION? Well, here it is! My experiences have taught me that no matter how grave the situation may be your WILL and Faith can sustain you.

Moreover, if you’re looking for someone to virtually kick your ass, subscribe to CT Fletcher’s channel. You won’t regret it!
