Some of us are side-seekers, preferring to stand near the walls, away from the center of attention, anywhere outside the spotlight is our comfort zone … but it gets tricky for us side-seekers when one excels. Excellence is pretty obvious to spot, imagine a flashlight pointed directly into your eyes. Airmen (side-seekers or spotlighters) who excel have no choice then to be noticed, they become the star, become an inspiration and that is what a student found himself being when he re-enlisted after a break in service.
