SHREVEPORT, La. --
A Military Entrance Processing Station, or MEPS for short, is the gateway for many entering military service (all branches). On average, the Shreveport, Louisiana MEPS processes approximately 6,000 applicants annually. On Feb. 27, 8th Air Force leadership visited the station and swore in more than a dozen future Airmen, Sailors, Marines and Soldiers.
