Kathy is a veteran who served 6 years in the US Air Force. During her time in the Air Force, she worked as Security Forces K9 handler, searching for explosives with her K9 and supporting law enforcement operations. She has deployed twice overseas to the middle east, supported Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. Kathy has provided security for President Obama and the first Lady during the 2012 Democratic National Convention. During her last year in the Air Force, she served in South Korea, protecting assets and securing Osan Air Base installation.

She is more than deserving of a Veteran Hero nomination.
