Kacey G., Air Force Spouse
Air Force spouse, Kacey, is humble and kind. Always looking to help others, never striving to highlight herself. Her story is like so many other milspouse stories; full of love, service, strength, flexibility, and resilience. Infinitely worth highlighting.
She met her husband in 2001 in a small town in Iowa during an ice storm. He wanted her number, but she refused to give it to him, so he gave her his instead. A few days later she decided to call him, and they have been together ever since. She officially began her milspouse journey in 2004. Using her new husband’s GI Bill, Kacey completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources Management in 2.5 years, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She learned the value of family resources through the support of the AF Education Center. Like many milspouses, Kacey has struggled with employment, leaving multiple jobs and unable to progress, not because of her abilities but because of the needs of the Air Force. Rather than giving in to discouragement, Kacey continued to grind while choosing to support her milspouse community.
