As a Dominican American in the New Jersey Air National Guard, Senior Airman Kevin Gonzalez-Luis is a part of the 14 percent of Hispanic Airmen in the U.S. Air Force, according to the Department of Defense Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
His parents came to the U.S. in the 1990s and worked hard for their family to have a good life in a new country. Gonzalez-Luis works full time with the 108th Force Support Squadron's installation personnel readiness section where he is responsible for everything related to readiness and deployments. He also works part time at an Acura dealership where he learns and earns certifications for automotive technology. He hopes to one day become fully licensed and open his own automotive shop.
