Air National Guard Airman 1st Class Samantha J. Krumwiede graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, 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.

She is a 2007 graduate of West Fargo High School and the daughter of Bill and Julie Krumwiede of West Fargo.

Senior Master Sgt. Michael W. Schreiner was promoted to the rank of Chief Master Sergeant, the highest enlisted rank in the U.S. Air Force.  Attaining this rank is the pinnacle of an enlisted member's career.

Schreiner is a member of the North Dakota Air National Guard, assigned to the 219th Security Forces Squadron located at Minot Air Force Base in Minot, N.D. He serves as the full-time Security Forces Squadron Manager.

Schreiner was raised in West Fargo, and after graduating from West Fargo Community High School in 1989, he joined the North Dakota Air National Guard that same year where he has served in a variety of positions within the 119th Wing Security Forces Squadron located in Fargo.

In 2009, Schreiner and his family moved to the Minot area to be one of the initial members to stand up the new North Dakota Air National Guard Security Forces Squadron located there.

Schreiner currently resides in Velva, N.D. with his wife, Melissa, and their three children, Hunter, Austin and Thomas.
