50th Security Forces Squadron Airmen are the first individuals to greet anyone entering Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, but who is the individual behind the plate carrier, M4 carbine and Berretta M9?
Airman 1st Class Stevie La Croix, 50th SFS response force patrol, hails from Hesperia, California about an hour and a half from Los Angeles. La Croix said she always had plans to join the Air Force.
“I wanted to go to college and I knew the Air Force could help with that and my grandfather was in the Navy,” she said. “From about the age of 10 I knew the military was something I wanted to be a part of.”
La Croix said she plans to make a career out of the Air Force and utilize the benefits earned through her service.
