Tracy Kaeslin’s father was an Air Force man who served 30 years as a B-52 navigator. It made for a typical military upbringing in that every few years the family moved and the Kaeslins got a chance to see new things and meet new people.
That was just fine with Kaeslin, who grew to like all that moving around. As she pursued a career in nursing at California State University, Fresno, she became deeply involved in leadership with the California Student Nurses Association. As such she became familiar with Air Force recruiters.
It wasn’t like this Sanford Health nurse needed the recruiters to explain Air Force life. It may have aided her, though, in helping her make what became a career decision.
