Loren's Badass Chick

Amal Wing

It's Veterans Day Weekend and today's Badass Chick is US Marine Veteran Amal Wing of Lancaster! 

 

Amal wanted to join the armed forces since she was 7 years old when she saw her uncle come home from service. So in 2009 she enlisted, and a few years later at the age of 22, she deployed to Afghanistan for a full year. She worked in communications, ensuring that everyone out on the ground would be able to communicate back to the base. 

 

When she arrived home, she was still training but suffered from severe hip pain. She retired from the service and decided to put herself through the police academy and become a reserve officer. Nowadays, Amal has decided to do one more badass thing, which is open her own photography business. Oh, and not to mention she's a wife and mom to three children - one of which has cystic fibrosis. 

 

Because of her bravery, badassery and the challenges she faces with her hip pain and her son's cystic fibrosis, Amal was chosen by Baths for the Brave and got a new bathroom thanks to New Pro Home Improvement. It makes it safer for her and her son to do their every day, daily routines -- and man is she deserving! 

 

Huge, HUGE thank you to all of our veterans for so seflessly fighting for our incredible country.
