STAFF SERGEANT CHARISTA WILLIAMS, 36
There’s nothing more important than family
There’s nothing more important than family to Staff Sergeant Charista Williams. After losing her mother several years ago, Williams secured full custody of her younger sister, Shavon, 19, and is stepping back into mommy mode with 6-year-old daughter, Mashajn. This Fourth of July the sergeant says she will reflect on the freedoms and rights we often take for granted.
