Seth Higgins enlisted in the U.S. Air Force after graduating from high school in rural North Central Pennsylvania. As a C-17 Loadmaster stationed at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, he conducted aircrew operations in over 35 countries and territories, and about half the U.S. states. These experiences led him to become interested in how coordinated logistics operations enhance international security. After completing his four-year enlistment, Seth separated from active duty and received a dual bachelor’s degree in supply chain management and business information systems from the University of Pittsburgh. Seth continues to serve in the Air Force Reserve.
