Air Force Airman Marnel A. Wheatley 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.

Wheatley is the son of Marshall Wheatley of Washington, D.C.

He is a 2011 graduate of Coolidge Senior High School.
