Honored Military Alumni

Carla (Langston) Holbrook
Carla (Langston) Holbrook Class of 1980
Air Force, 20+ Years
I served my country for 26 years retiring in 2007 in the grade of SMSgt (E-8). I spent 20 years as a paralegal and loved serving my country. My husband served 26 years as well. After taking two years off to enjoy my family and be a "stay at home mom and wife" I have ventured back into the work force working as a civilian on MacDill AFB. There are some aspects of the military life that I miss, but I am glad to be retired but I will always bleed "blue"!
