Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month From South Asia to Scott AFB: An Indian woman’s journey into the U.S. military
Maj. Anita Shade, 375th Dental Squadron dental residency program director, joined the Air Force almost a decade ago. Shade grew up in India and moved to Doha, Qatar when she was 23, where she planned on going through training to be a harbor pilot like her father. However, she moved to the U.S. a few months later, where she spent the next 10 years struggling. Then, she got her U.S. dental license and became an Airman. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
