Flying Officer Shahrukh

Can something confer you surplus fulfillment than being authorized to keep up your flag tall among the other flags of the globe?
Congratulations to the young “Flying Officer Sharukh”

Muhammad Shahrukh Khan, a 19 years old young Pakistani Cadet who passed USAF class of 2021, belongs to the city of Lahore. He was endorsed into the United States Air Force (USAF) Academy for four years of rigorous theoretical and military discipline.

The photograph of Shahrukh fluttering the Pakistani flag elevated at his graduation ceremony has been spreading on social media. The members of the community of internet users are complimenting the cadet for his extraordinary accomplishment. Cadet Shahrukh Khan had been approved into the US Air Force Academy in 2017 at the age of 19 years.

In an interview, before leaving his land Shahrukh said:
“I’m excited to go, to learn about the world and people and their different backgrounds.” He further declared that from a military perspective, it will be a chance for him to outshine. He learned a lot in Pakistan. The U.S. Air Force Academy will instruct him on new and unique aspects.

The enthusiastic flying officer stood among 12 learners appointed by the Pakistan military. They had to compete in the Service Academy Foreign Student project. In this scheme, member countries designate distinguished young people. They strive for the vacancy to compete for access to the U.S. military academies. Due to the significant military connection between Pakistan and the United States, Pakistan is one of only 12 nations specified by the United States Secretary of Defense as a priority authorization region.

Shahrukh fulfilled the Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA) and interview categories of the application at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad. CFA is an examination of stamina, skillfulness, tempo, and persistence. This helps to anticipate a candidate’s fitness for the physical procedure at the military academies. Shahrukh verified strength and loyalty to service in Pakistan’s Armed Forces.

It is important to know that normally in the past one could not join the military from a different country. One had to become a permanent U.S. citizen, a green-card owner.
