Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Roberto shares his wife’s inspiration to join the Air Force for Military Monday this week. Deborah is Roberto’s wife and she works in logistics for the Air Force. She also is in the Booster Club, which is a morale building group.

Deborah got airman of the quarter, airman of the year in 2022. Recently, she won Champion of the Week. Roberto tells us his wife’s inspiration to join the Air Force. He says, “She was struggling to find, like, a decent career, and she wanted something that gave her more purpose. And my family is military. I’m also prior military. I’m a disabled veteran…It took her about three years to make the decision to do it, but she did it, and she’s been doing great. She excelled at it, and she’s been taking it head on.”

Deborah has only been in the Air Force for 3 years and Roberto is so proud of her and wanted to highlight her for Military Monday.

Congrats to Deborah as she receives a $100 Tampa Premium Outlets gift card.
