Loman graduates basic training

Airmen who complete basic training also earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Loman is the daughter of Melissa and George Loman of Las Cruces, N.M., and granddaughter of Matty and Nila Matsler of Las Cruces, N.M., Helen Loman of Silt, Colo., and Michael and Susan McCoy of Oakland, Tenn.
