After 16 years in the Army, four Iraq deployments and overseas stints in Turkey, Germany, Japan and Korea, Staff Sergeant Angela Stevenson obviously loves her job. Now, though, she’s head over heels to be back home with her husband, Joseph, who is also an Army vet stationed at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. The couple never went more than three days without talking to each other. Stevenson intends to give the Army another four years and then pursue her passion for health care management. While she knows there is much more work to be done to diversify the ranks, she is honored to be one of the women who is leading a command. “I don’t take anything for granted,” says Stevenson. “There are many Black women who are making it to higher ranks. I admire them so much and I’m really proud to have them working beside me.”
