Since then, the AMMO community (munitions Airmen) has reached out and given support to Cathy and her husband. She now is running for her son, her personal goal is to reach 1,000 miles and during her journey she hopes to visit all the AMMO units in America. The 363rd is quite special as it is where they train AMMO troops, this was where her son started his career. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Pedro Tenorio)
