About Our Hero Image
Florence Cruz, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel, holds a photo of her parents, both of whom were federal civilians at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts, pinning on her new rank during a promotion ceremony from her time as a military member in the nursing career field.
Cruz served from March 1980 to October 1999 and continued her civilian career as a disease management nurse and patient educator responsible for teaching patients how to manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma and others.
She is one of many veterans that has served as a civilian on the installation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Todd Maki)
