Barnes Air National Guard Base, 104 Fighter Wing - Westfield, Mass -- Master Sgt. Sandra Woodin joined the Massachusetts Air National Guard in 2001. She originally enlisted as an active-duty member, following in her brother's footsteps. Prior to her career in the ANG, she served on active duty for four years as an avionics technician at Travis Air Force Base in California and Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota.
"Being a traditional guardsman is a bit more challenging than in active duty because you have a full-time responsibility to a civilian employer and then you have your responsibility to the Air National Guard," she related.
Sgt. Woodin currently works in the Logistics Readiness office, where she has been for the past five years. Her job functions include helping service members deploy, as well as the management of equipment and cargo during deployments.
