Military News: Galliano native graduates from basic training

Air Force Airman Kanaan K. Collins, of Galliano, graduated from basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio Texas in March 2016.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, military customs and courtesies, performed drill and ceremony marches and received physical training, rifle marksmanship, field training and special training in human relations.

In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits towards an associate degree in applied science. He earned distinction as an honor graduate of the 321st Training Squadron, Flight 223 and participated in the Drum and Bugle Corp.

Collins is the son of Drew and Kristine Collins and the grandson of Roy and Linda Guidry and Mary and the late Dennis Collins. He is a 2015 graduate of South Lafourche High School.
