US Air Force ROTC cadets and University of Alaska Anchorage students Alexander Hone, Brandon Holmquist and Philip Scott were chosen for the highly coveted rated spots in the United States Air Force.

Hone and Scott were selected to be trained as pilots while Holmquist received a combat systems officer position.

All three have passed rigorous testings and were ranked high enough by their commanders to qualify for the positions.

Hone, Holmquist and Scott will receive their college degree in May 2015 and will be commissioned as second Lieutenants in the US Air Force.
