Jessica Settle, the 131st Bomb Wing command chief, are photographed for the Whiteman Warrior. This is the first time Team Whiteman has had female Airmen hold the position of command chief in all three wings at the same time.

These three women have two things in common: They are all command chiefs, and they are all different.
