U.S. Air Force Airman Brendan L. Owens graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, 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.

Owens is the son of Brook M. Metcalf of Hudson, and Brian L. Owens of Janesville, and brother of Austin L. Owens of Hudson.

He is a 2015 graduate of Hudson High School.
