BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, California --
"I was born in the Philippines and I met my husband at Clark Air Base in 1977 and we got married Jan 1980. I’ve been working civil service for 36+ years. My husband and I settled here at Beale Air Force Base and we will have been here almost 20 years. I have been the program coordinator and planner for the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month for 15 years. Everybody always knows me by Grace. I am also a member of the choir during the Catholic Service in the Foothills chapel on base. I work a lot and throughout the years I’ve learned the sweet magic of a cheerful face."
