International Women’s Day
Spc. Tiara Guerrero, an aircraft powerplant repairer with B Company, Eagle 277th Aviation Support Battalion, joined the Army two years ago in a predominately male career. But in a results-based career like the Army, size or gender don’t matter- results do. Guerrero said being a woman and being small compels her to try even harder.
“Women constantly have to prove themselves in their [military occupational speciality] and elsewhere,” said Guerrero. “I’ve worked hard to be proficient with rifles. I want to set the standard.”
She is anticipating a promotion board soon here in Illesheim Germany, and she is confident she will succeed.
“I enjoy the Army. It’s something I’m really good at.”
