Captain Terri Pacheco of Phoenix was profiled in a special Veteran’s day video put out by the Army Reserve.
Pecheco joined the Air Force right after high school and served four years before going to school for her undergraduate and master’s degree. After grad school, she transitioned to the Army Reserve.
She works as a military technician, providing HR for the Department of Defense during the week. On weekends, she suits up as an Army Reserve soldier. She feels that her two jobs are most definitely related.
“At the end of the day, I feel like I’ve helped soldiers,” Pacheco said.
