Sergeant thrives after overcoming health problems, image challenges
For years, U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Yecenia Caban-Jimenez has struggled to hold on to her dream of serving in an Air Force she adores. After being injured during a 2009 deployment, she gained 100 pounds and subsequently failed four PT tests within 25 months. She has now shed the weight and is near the end of her road to recovery.
