Women's History Month spotlights lieutenant

The 932nd Airlift Wing salutes our female Airmen that serve proudly as March is National Women's History Month, and this year's theme is Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government. Women's History Month started as a national celebration in 1981, when Congress authorized the president to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as Women's History Week. Here in Illinois, we salute 1st Lt. Tammy Holtgrave, who is one of the newest officers in the 932nd Airlift Wing, although she is not truly new to the unit. She previously started the hard way years ago as Airman Basic Holtgrave and after the strenuous basic training and technical schools, came back and worked in the 932nd AW headquarters building as part of the Force Support Squadron, and was an enthusiastic information manager. After working on her educational goals, she was able to transition over to become an officer in the 932nd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron. I followed in my dad's footsteps as he served in the Marines. I'm loving it and I plan to retire in the Air Force Reserve, she added. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj. Stan Paregien)
