Holm completes basic training

Air Force Airman Therese M. Holm graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. She 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 degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Holm is the daughter of Dawn and Gary Holm of Hallock, Minn., and the granddaughter of Dorothy and John Jirschele of Wisconsin Rapids. She is a 2012 graduate of Kittson Central High School in Hallock, Minn.

Schwersenska completes combat training

Army National Guard Pvt. Cody J. Schwersenska has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C.

During the nine weeks of training, Schwersenska studied the Army mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and received instruction and practice in basic combat skills, military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches, and field training exercises.

Schwersenska is the son of Raymond Schwersenska of Hancock and the grandson of Donna Besaw of Waupaca. He is a 2012 graduate of Wautoma High School.

Trachte promoted to senior airman

Sarah E. Trachte has been specifically identified for early promotion to senior airman in the U.S. Air Force. She was awarded the new rank ahead of other Air Force members by a "Below-The-Zone" promotion board, which considered Trachte's time in grade, time in service, job performance, military knowledge, bearing, exceptional qualifications, self-improvement efforts and best overall record.

The Below-the-Zone program provides an opportunity for exceptionally well-qualified airman first class to a one-time consideration for promotion to senior airman six months prior to the fixed fully-qualified phase point. To be selected and considered for the promotion, the airman must meet specific requirements outlined in Air Force regulations and must be recommended by the commander.

Trachte, a broadcaster assigned to the 673rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs Office at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, has served in the military for two years. She is the granddaughter of Joyce Trachte of Arpin and earned a bachelor's degree in 2010 from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Fla.
