Basic Military Training Airman Spotlight: Daiana Schandler
Name: Daiana Schandler / Hometown: Panama / Career Field: Aeromedical Evacuation / Reasons For Joining Air Force Reserve: "I like how AE is focused on helping people and saving lives. After being a housewife for 22 years, I was further motivated by my two daughters who are both AF active duty. One is a weather technician assigned to Sheppard AFB, Texas and the other is a dental assistant stationed at Nellis AFB, Nevada. I also had the opportunity to see each of them graduate from Air Force Basic Military Training. A combination of witnessing them accomplish BMT graduation and listening (and crying) to the national anthem at both of their graduations was catalyst for the reason I'm here today, en route to basic training."
