that we have great first sergeants and chiefs that will come to aid to help those that need assistance; for my parents who adopted me from Costa Rica and brought me to America to have the American dream; for my father, who introduced me to the military, to the Air Force and was the biggest reason why I joined to my mother, who supported me and taught me wrong from right and stood by me even when I made multiple mistakes in my life; for the family that I now have; for my five beautiful daughters, who I cherish with all of my heart; for my best friend who has been through my journey for the past 10 years and supported me through the good and bad, through the moments that I just felt like giving up; for the Air Force family that has assisted me in situations that I thought I couldn’t overcome. Thanks for being a Wingman. And for those who stuck around, thank you.
