OCEANSIDE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – This weekend, as we salute those who gave their lives for the country, the next generation of the nation’s military is stepping up with big shoes to fill.
Identical twins Lias and Daniel Gomez from Oceanside, N.Y. said joining the Air Force just made sense.
“Well basically, my dad was a cop and my mom’s a flight attendant. So mix those two together – there you go, you know Air Force was born,” Lias told WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. “I just always had that feeling of service. I don’t like desk jobs, so the Air Force was definitely appealing to me and something that was honorable.”
