RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – The Air Force recently selected its two winners of the 2010 National LATINA Symposium Distinguished Service Award.
The award honors the servicemember and civilian employee who demonstrate distinguished performance and display exceptional character as role models representing the Hispanic community with dignity and pride.
This year’s winners are Master Sgt. Sandra Nunes, 56th Medical Group at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., and Julie Moran, National Air and Space Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
