MSgt Natalie R., Air Force Spouse

We are an active duty mil-to-mil Air Force couple. We have two boys ages 10 and 11. Our oldest son, Demonie, is autistic, full of facts, and absolutely loves Pokémon and animals. Our youngest son, Makai, loves video games, basketball, and pretty much anything outside.

We thrive in the Air Force because it is truly a family affair for us. I was born and raised in the Air Force since both my parents served as well. This way of life is all I know. As a family, we have a natural drive to be successful and to motivate each other to achieve whatever it is that we have our heads and hearts set on. It also takes a lot of resilience and flexibility. This way of life comes with a lot of change and the need to quickly adapt. We’ve also had the luxury of having a solid extended family support system to help when needed.
