Major Rebecca Lange
Major Rebecca “BB” Lange is a proud alumna of the second class of AmeriCorps NCCC Denver Campus (served in 1995). She is currently an active duty Air Force major and serves as a Deputy Legislative Assistant at the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, preceded by a tour as a defense fellow for U.S. Senator Bill Nelson. During AmeriCorps, she built houses and trails with NCCC and served on the AmeriCorps Team for the Games during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. After her AmeriCorps year, she used her education award at the University of Colorado and enrolled as an Air Force ROTC cadet. As an intelligence officer, she has deployed to Qatar, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan. She is also a proud military spouse. Rebecca says, “It's all about service. It's the pride in knowing your country needs you and has trained you to answer its call. And in a small, small way, you know you are giving back to the country that allowed you to grow up in freedom. I could not be more proud to be an Air Force officer and an AmeriCorps alum!" She currently sits on the leadership council of the Washington, D.C. chapter of AmeriCorps Alums.
