U.S. Space Force Col. Heidi Dexter, 21st Communications Squadron commander, gives a keynote speech about the unique challenges and attitudes she has faced as a woman in the military, opening the Peterson-Schriever Garrison Women's Leadership Symposium including International Transgender Visibility Day on March 31, 2022, at Peterson Space Force Base, Colorado. Throughout her career as an officer, a mother and part of a dual-military marriage, she said that she’d been asked how she responded to all the responsibilities on her plate — a question that she noted was never posed to her husband, despite him handling the same responsibilities — before sharing personal challenges and triumphs in the name of hope, healing and resilience.
