Footprints in the Sand: A girl that was never alone

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Tanya Lee Rose Rodriguez, 87th Security Forces Squadron K-9 handler, plays with her military working dog FFranklin at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., Jan. 23, 2020. Rodriguez credits her tough upbringing, amongst drugs and abuse, to the woman she is today - resilient. She has been in the U.S. Air Force for seven years and is passionate about who she is as a K-9 handler. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Briana Cespedes)
