here from Air Force Space Command Headquarters, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado,

Since her first enlistment was a short time after Sept. 11, 2001,
she decided to reenlist her final time Sept. 11, to reengage the “great sense
of pride and purpose” she felt then.
“In both instances, I felt honored to be
part of a team that is helping to solve a tremendous challenge,” Walker said.
timely was the fact the reenlistment officer, Lt. Col. Brian Lukowski,
Director, Space Forces, Continental Aerospace Defense Region-1st Air Force (Air
Forces Northern) was previously her flight commander at Cheyenne Mountain Air
“Even though we haven’t worked together since 2005, it was an
easy adjustment to regain our old crew coordination,” Lukowski said.
