Joint Force Headquarters (G4), Puerto Rico Army National Guard
Suárez joined the Guard in 1994. Highlights of her almost 28 years of service include attending drill sergeant school at Fort Benning, Georgia, and her time as a first sergeant. "This is an opportunity to motivate a new generation of women, especially in the National Guard. Our path has not been easy. We broke, and continue to break, paradigms, ways of thinking, preconceptions, and even so, we managed to fulfill the mission. It will inspire other female Soldiers to identify with and carry on the legacy."
