JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST --
Senior Airman Erin Boris is from Bethlehem, P.A., and the youngest daughter of Michael and Wendy Boris. She decided to join the U.S. Air Force in September 2013 to enhance her education and to learn a new skill that could benefit both the U.S. Air Force and her civilian job as an information security analyst for a large hospital. She began her career with the U.S. Air Force Reserves as a cyber systems operator for a combat communications squadron. After two years, she transferred to the New Jersey Air National Guard and re-trained into intelligence analysis where she provides operational support for the 140th Cyber Operations Squadron, 108th Wing at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. Since joining the Air National Guard, Boris has specialized in performing research and analysis for cyber threats and delivering precision intelligence products to her cyber protection team. To-date, she has provided more than 1,000 hours of vital cyber intelligence to the 108th Wing's first ever cyber mobilization and was an instrumental part in the construction of the new, state-of-the-art Cyber Operations Center at JBMDL. With her dedication to the field, she enrolled herself in an undergraduate program for cyber security and is just a year away from obtaining her bachelor’s degree. Boris is one of many bright young Guardswomen that is ready and equipped to meet the Nation’s needs to succeed in the full spectrum of global challenges ahead.
