Air Force Reserve Airman 1st Class Jacob W. Mckague graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas.

The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Mckague earned distinction as an honor graduate. Mckague is the son of Sherri L. Mckague of Dawsonville, grandson of Edward G. Kelso of Cumming, and the son-in-law of Anne Martin of Gainesville. He is a 2008 graduate of Westminster Christian School in Gainesville.
