In addition to teaching at Riverview, Montgomery is also an airman first class with the United States Air Force, serving as a munitions specialist with the Indiana Air National Guard's 122nd Fighter Wing based in Fort Wayne. Montgomery told the students he turned down a football scholarship to join the Air Force after high school, but didn't make the cut. He fulfilled his dream, he said, by enlisting a year ago, at age 36.
