Air Force Airman James A. Monson graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas.

The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.

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

Monson is the son of Phachara Sasian Auburn, Wash., and brother of Amy Wright of Mesa, Ariz.

He is a 2011 graduate of Thomas Jefferson High school in Federal Way.
