Garnett Singleton received his high school education from a town with a large Air Force presence. His uncle and a few cousins were in the Air Force and his mother was a civilian employee at Robins AFB, Ga. This family influence prompted Garnett to enlist in the United States Air Force Reserves. He started his career with the 622nd CLSS at Robins AFB, GA as an Avionics Systems Technician working communication and navigations systems aboard the F-15 aircraft. Due to unit downsizing, his skill set changed to Electro-Environmental Systems Technician which was worked aboard the C-130 aircraft. While at Robins AFB, GA, Garnett held collateral duties as Unit Safety NCO and had the honor of serving as President of Top Three Club before the unit was disbanded, leading to his relocation to Charleston AFB, SC until his retirement in August 2008. As a member of the 315 MXS at Charleston AFB, SC, SMSgt Singleton served as Electro-Environmental Systems Shop Superintendent and held a collateral duty as unit career advisor.
The experience and education that came along with his military career change allowed Garnett to obtain associate degrees in Avionics Systems Technology and Aircraft Maintenance Technology.

With his current company, Garnett started as an avionics technician working on the large cabin production aircraft. This experience furthered his experience, allowing him to progress to working in-service aircraft and later to the training department as an aircraft maintenance instructor.
