#VeteranOfTheDay Air Force Veteran Ashley Nichole Garza


Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Air Force Veteran Ashley Nichole Garza.

While serving in the Air Force, Ashley served tours in Afghanistan and Qatar.

She was recently forced to evacuate her home in California due to the wildfires. Her father reported that Ashley and her family, thankfully, are safe. They are now in the process of rebuilding their lives with the help of their community.

Thank you for your service, Ashley!
