HARKER HEIGHTS — William E. Duvall V, the son of a First Army Division West battalion commander, was accepted into the U.S. Air Force Academy.

William’s father, Lt. Col. William E. Duvall IV, commands the division’s 1st Battalion, 393rd Infantry Regiment, 479th Field Artillery Brigade.

“William is an incredible young man and the Air Force is lucky to have him. He has worked very hard and his mother and I are so happy it has paid off for William,” the elder Duvall said.

William, who left for the academy in June, is now the fourth generation of his family to serve in the military.
