Duane Robert Miller, a 2004 Wood River High School graduate, attended the U.S. Air Force Academy and graduated in 2008 after four challenging years of academics and Division 1 wrestling.
Miller was then offered, and accepted a pilot slot, which added two more years of studying and flight training. Despite the high rate of attrition, now 1st Lt. Miller completed this training at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Okla. He graduated on Dec. 17, 2010 and received his ratings and pilot wings.
A son of Don and Barb Miller, Duane has now started his 10-year mandatory service as an Air Force pilot.
