Travis A. Langham
Travis A. Langham has entered Basic Cadet Training at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo., in preparation to enter the first academic year at the academy.  The six-week, two-phased orientation program must be successfully completed by the cadets prior to entering their freshman year. The training prepares men and women to meet the rigorous mental and physical challenges experienced by new cadets.

Phase one involves personal in-processing, orientation, and training in the fundamentals of being a cadet.  

Cadet trainees are prepared to adjust from civilian to military life and disciplines, and learn proper wear of the uniform, saluting policies and procedures, drill and ceremony, marching, and living quarters standards.

During phase two, cadets train outdoors living in tents while learning to function in field conditions.  Cadets apply and practice team work, cohesion and learn to deal with physically and mentally demanding situations.  They complete the obstacle, confidence, assault, and leadership reaction courses, and participate in a rescue mission termed Operation Warrior.

He is the son of Samuel and Dawn Langham of Saugus.

Langham is a 2009 graduate of Saugus High School.

He is the son of Gary Marshall of Canyon Country.

Marshall is a 2008 graduate of the North Valley Christian School in Newhall.
