Hurricane Maria Airman shares story of family, service in wake of natural disasters
Growing up in Puerto Rico five miles from Roosevelt Roads, one Airman from Travis Air Force Base, California knows all too well the dangers due to the location of the island. “Since I was a child, my family would always stock pile food and water in preparation for the hurricane season,” said Capt. Christian Ocasio, 821st Contingency Response Support Squadron civil engineering officer. “There would always be a powerful storm heading straight toward us, but would change directions at the last minute.” That’s exactly what Hurricane Irma did after devastating the U.S. Virgin Islands. In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Ocasio and his team were sent to the Virgin Islands to perform an airfield assessment of airports in St. Thomas and St. Croix.
