Tech. Sgt. Michael R. Holzworth was born in Hyannis, Mass., Sept. 17, 1974.
He graduated from The Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School in 1992, and joined The U.S. Air Force. His first duty station was Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., there he learned a great appreciation for photography.
In 1997 he transferred to Beale Air Force Base, Calif., as a high altitude aerial reconnaissance film processor. After spending three boring years at Beale Air Force Base, Holzworth received orders to Lajes Field, Azores, as a still photographer. He stayed there for 15-months until being assigned to Bolling Air Base. D.C. After a couple years of D.C. traffic, he was ready to leave so the Air Force sent him to lovely Kunsan, Air Base, Korea. While in Korea he became quite the mixologist, helping manage the squadron Hooch by night and perfect his golf game by day. Only after all the alcohol was gone and his handicap was down to ten was he allowed to leave Korea and go to Aviano, Air Base, Italy, where he deployed to Albania and Iraq before being accepted for the military photojournalism program at Syracuse University. After graduating SU, Tech. Sgt. Holzworth, was assigned to Nellis Air Force Base, N.V.
