Staff Sergeant Parker McKenna moved to Flower Mound as a child in 1997, and he would eventually attend Marcus High School. During his four years there, Parker was involved in the JROTC program and committed to the U.S. Air Force during his senior year. After graduating in 2015, Parker attended basic training in San Antonio and completed tech school for Security Forces. At his first duty station, Yokota Air Base in Japan, Parker served for two years before being reassigned to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. After four successful years at Joint Base Andrews, Parker is now stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona where he gets to exercise his passion for teaching as the Training Manager for the aircraft maintainers working on F-35s and F-16s.
Parker plans to continue his career in the U.S. Air Force while also finishing his bachelor’s degree in Education and Training. Thank you for your service, Staff Sergeant McKenna! It is greatly appreciated.
