Amn Emily Hanna works in the Facility Maintenance Section. She is currently the FMS scheduler, an FMS tool room trainer, a tool room shift lead, and is the program lead for their shops' extensive bench stock program.

Amn Hanna takes the time to train and mentor the new tool room airmen on their many roles and responsibilities, has created and implemented a new system of organizing their supply section, and conducts needed parts research for the missile complex. She was awarded Distinguished Graduate in technical school and has continued to exceed standards both on and off duty. Amn Hanna embodies the whole airmen concept. Most notably, she performed lifesaving SABC on a fellow airman this year, ultimately saving his life.

Amn Hanna was raised by an engineer and a surgical technician, setting her up to enjoy the physical aspects of her career field. She finds working in FMS enjoyable even when things get stressful because of the importance of our mission’s global impact. She has continued to feel empowered by those prior women who have worked in her career field. They have shared their Air Force history with her as a learning tool and continue to give her feedback on how she can improve and stand up for what she believes in.

Amn Hanna finds International Women’s Day important due to the small percentage of women serving in the Air Force and the even smaller number of women working in her career field. To her Women’s Day means celebrating the amazing hard-working women that we work with and setting an example for the future women joining the Air Force.
