He then went to Fort Meade and completed photo-journalism school. From Maryland he was assigned to Fort Benning and completed airborne jump school making the five jumps required to graduate.
Aird has recently been working with the recruiters in Woodinville. On July 7 he left for Italy to join his unit. He will be stationed there for two years.
He is the son of Ronald Aird of Woodinville.
