Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay are Air Force Veterans Camille and Candace Scott and Army Veteran Crystal Womack.

Camille, Candace and Crystal are triplets who served in the military. Although all three shared the same sense of duty, each took an independent path in their military careers.

Camille served as a medical technician in the Air Force for 12 years. Her duty stations included Keesler Air Force Base, Osan Air Base in South Korea and Elgin Air Force Base. She was also deployed twice, to Landstuhl, Germany and Kirkuk Air Base in Iraq. She is currently working in the emergency department at a hospital in Florida.

Candace also served in Air Force for 11 years. She was an intelligence analyst, assigned to Langley Air Force Base. She also served at Osan Air Base. For her service, she was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal and Air Force Achievement Medal. After leaving the military, Candace has continued her work as an intelligence analyst for the Department of Defense at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland.

Crystal decided to join the Army, where she served as a finance manager at Fort Stewart, Georgia. After her medical retirement from the Army, she is now working on getting her associate’s degree.

Thank you for your service, Camille, Candace and Crystal!
