Women of Courage: Serving on two fronts

Capt. Katiana Colón, 837th Training Squadron, stands in front of her desk at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, March 19, 2024. Colón, who’s assigned to the Inter-American Air Forces Academy, has been a single mother for most of her career. Her story of navigating service as a single mother is a testament to her determination and strength. She tells others in a similar situation, “Don’t let anyone dictate what you should be doing; fight for what you believe in.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Vanessa Adame)
