Airman Portraits: Resilient family deals with multiple disasters

On Aug. 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Julianne Bocek, 2nd Air Force, and her family were among the hundreds of thousands of people who lost their homes during the storm. After moving and losing their new home in a fire, all seemed lost, but with an unbreakable will and strong support system the family was able to overcome and rebuild. Bocek is a program manager with 2nd Air Force, Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. (U.S. Air Force photo by Greg C. Biondo)
