Emily Chilson Heads to Afghanistan

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Former K-Kountry kamper and staff member, Emily Chilson, is currently serving in the Air Force as a Public Affairs Officer and is headed to Afghanistan sometime this month. 

Emily is originally from Memphis and graduated from TCU (Go Frogs!) in 2008 as a Second Lieutenant in the USAF.  For the past two years, Emily has been stationed at Shaw AFB in Sumter, SC.   For the last three months, she has been at Camp Atterbury in Indiana receiving training in counter insurgency, consequence management, and urban operations.  She has also spent time at Indiana University learning to speak some Pashto, the most prominent language spoken in the Paktika Province where Emily will be.

At K-Kountry, Emily was better known as “JetStream” for her role in the 2007 RocketSquad Gospel Skit.  We are huge Emily Chilson fans and pray God’s blessing and protection on her while she serves our country. 

Proud of you Emily!

On Labor Day Weekend, two long time K-Kountry staff members (Brett McLaughlin and Joey Storms) tied the knot in Oklahoma City.  It was such a blast to see so many K-Kountry friends and families celebrating Brett and Joey’s marriage.  The K-Kountry crew was definitely in full effect on the dance floor!  Congratulations Brett & Joey.  We love you guys.
