Women of Courage: Serving on two fronts

Capt. Katiana Colón, (left) 837th Training Squadron, is pictured with her aunt, retired Col. Daisy Raldiris, at her commissioning ceremony, June 7, 2014. Colón was inspired to join the military as a child growing up in Puerto Rico after listening to her grandfather’s military experiences and seeing her aunt in uniform. Although she takes great joy from being a mother, Colón does not want to be viewed only as a mom. She offers advice to others in a similar situation: “Don’t let anyone else dictate what you should be doing; fight for what you believe in.” Colón stands to put on the rank of major in the near future.
