Townsquare Media and the Jay & Linda Grunin Foundation are teaming up to salute our local heroes with our Warrior of the Week program.

Congratulations to Kaelyn Passeri, our Warrior of the Week for the week of October 1st, 2018.

U.S. Air Force National Guard Airman 1st Class Kaelyn M. Passeri 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 also earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Passeri is the daughter of Michael T. Passeri of Ocean Gate. 

She is a 2013 graduate of Central Regional High School and earned a bachelor's degree in 2017 from the University of New Haven.

Congratulations to Kaelyn Passeri, our Warrior of the Week.

Do you know a deserving past or present military member? Nominate them now. Every Military Monday, we’ll share one of the nominations and honor that person as our Warrior of the Week.
