The ViacomCBS Veterans Network would like to recognize and salute our black veterans for

Black History Month.


Paul Nwoko enlisted in the Air Force in December 2009 and was honorably discharged in September 2019. He completed basic training in San Antonio, Texas then proceeded to dental tech school in Sheppard AFB, Texas. He served in March Air Force Base, Riverside, CA, four years before transferring to Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, Nevada, until 2019. During his time at Nellis, Paul was part of a seven-man team responsible for managing the dental health needs of 926th group.


“Courage is one attribute I learned in the military. Often time, we face myriad of challenges and obstacles that require enduring spirit to overcome. Serving in the Air Force, I was challenged to do things I never have done or believed I could do. Even in the face of failure, you learn to never give up but to continually push yourself”, says Paul Nwoko


“I humbly believed the Air Force instills teamwork. There is no better institution to learn teamwork than the military. Every task is a mission, and working with a diverse group of talents and backgrounds to achieve the stated goals is the bedrock of the Air Force. During my time in the Air Force, I understood that working together brings the best individual talents for mission accomplishment”, says Paul Nwoko
