“I always tell people I'm so proud to be Hispanic American, because I can embrace the American, but I also have the Latina in me that will never leave my blood. I think seeing my parents working hard, being humble, has shaped me to be the person that I am.”

Lieutenant Colonel Marisol Chalas immigrated from the Dominican Republic when she was just nine years old. Her story of resilience is about breaking barriers for herself and other women in the Army, by rising above obstacles. She became the first Latina Black Hawk pilot in the Army National Guard. She later transitioned to the U.S. Army Reserves and currently serves as the Legislative Assistant to the 37th Vice Chief of Staff of the Army.

"My first aviation unit was not very female friendly, but I overcame that and became a much stronger person. Resilience means setting goals, falling down, dusting yourself off, and saying 'I got this.' It means if you have to take a step back and be like: 'God, why me?', you lean on your friends and you remind yourself what your goal is. And no matter what you just keep trucking forward. Querer es poder. To want is to achieve.”

"The XH-40 is probably the single most important helicopter in the collection. It was the Army's first turbine helicopter and really the turning point for the United States Army and certainly Army Aviation – this is the helicopter that changed the world.”
