Determined to carry forward a legacy of courage and honor, she stands resolute in her decision to serve with pride, just as her forefathers did before her. She feels the weight of generations who fought for freedom and justice, from the Buffalo Soldiers to the Tuskegee Airmen, to the Montford Point Marines, to the Harlem Hellfighters, and all the other African American units who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Their legacy of sacrifice, bravery, and resilience runs in her blood, and she is determined to continue their tradition.

As she follows in their footsteps, she understands the need to continue their struggle - not just for her country, but to set an example that fosters greater equality and progress for her people. She acknowledges their sacrifices and the resilience they exhibited, both in the face of combat abroad and oppression at home. Their stories serve as a perpetual reminder that strength and determination are woven into her very heritage.

Despite the challenges she faces as a woman in the military, she is undeterred by tradition, societal barriers, or discrimination. She knows she stands on the shoulders of giants and feels a duty to honor their legacy by blazing a trail for those who will follow. Her path is clear; she will serve with pride and distinction, embodying a spirit of resilience and dedication. She draws strength from knowing her commitment reflects the valor of those who came before her, ensuring their legacy endures through her unwavering resolve.
