JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas – Tiffany King enlisted in the Air Force to serve our nation. 

“When I joined, I didn’t really know what that meant, but I had a servant heart,” she said. 

Now retired from active-duty and working as an executive support specialist for AFIMSC’s Detachment 10 at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana, her servant heart has been a driving force throughout her military and civilian career. 

“Although I no longer wear the uniform, I still think it’s important to serve and support the Airmen and Guardians who protect us,” she said. 

Tiffany believes everyone can have an impact on the world.  

“We all have a gift to share,” she said. “We get so consumed in our own little world - making sure our circle of family and friends are taken care of - but we often don’t consider the impact we can make by giving our time and resources to others.”

During her assignment to Kunsan AB, Korea, Tiffany earned the Volunteer Service Medal for outstanding volunteer community service of a sustained, direct and consequential nature. Her work included assisting with beach clean-ups, conducting weekly visits to a local orphanage and teaching English to a local Korean citizen. 

Earning the medal was unexpected, but one of the proudest moments of her life. 

“There is no better feeling than helping others,” she said. “Everything I volunteered for came from the heart.” 

Today, Tiffany’s impact with her team extends beyond her day-to-day responsibilities. When they recently moved to a less-than-desirable office space, she used her interior design talents to make the space more inviting and comfortable.

“I have a great working relationship with my team, and I interact with them daily,” she said. “The Air Force has always felt like one big family to me.”
