Eslie Sanders Cashie

Captain, U.S. Air Force
Resident, Belmont Village Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA

“I started as an airman and immediately applied for direct commission as an officer after basic training. I was chairman of the non-appropriated or nongovernment funds and was in charge of the private school, bowling alley, NCO club and officers club on Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. I was the only African-American female who was not a nurse and I was treated very well, from the General to the enlisted men. It was the greatest time of my life.”
