to have had the opportunity to be the Postmistress of the U.S. Post Office on March from September 2001 until 2008. Not only did I meet and marry my husband, Lt. Col. Mark Baker, but met so many awesome people. Some of those friendships are still going strong today. Thank you!

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.
