Neal Hooks Bio

Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. Adopted at six weeks of age. Raised in very humble means; my dad was a journeyman electrician who was out of work often, and my mom was a stay-at-home mom raising her four children (I was the 2nd oldest). Because of this I started working at a very young age. While attending Arizona State University I married the love of my life. After graduation with a degree in Accounting I immediately received my commission as an officer in the USAF. After initial flying training I flew F-4s in Texas and South Korea; then F-111s in England; then F-15s in England and North Carolina; I also flew F/A-18s in Nevada. Since retirement I have been flying the MQ-9 Reaper 'Drone' as a civilian contractor at Creech AFB, NV and Holloman AFB, NM...eventually settling in Las Cruces, New Mexico in 2009. We have four kids that my stay-at-home wife of over 30 years has home-schooled. My oldest daughter is married with three kids living the dream in North Carolina; my oldest son is also married and expecting their first child, and is a graduate student at NMSU studying environmental science; my youngest son is a senior at the United States Air Force Academy studying mechanical engineering; and my youngest daughter is a freshman at NMSU on a full-ride scholarship studying animal science.
