Kendra Pacheco is the daughter of Vincent and Natalie Pacheco (Nevada); granddaughter of Perry Durnin (Iowa) and Valerie Pacheco (Nevada), Martin Austin and Lynette Fisherman (Nevada); great-granddaughter of Stanley Youngbear and Rae Jean Lasley (Iowa). Pacheco recently completed basic US Navy training at Recruitment Training Command in Great Lakes, IL on November 5, 2021. Joining the military has been a lifelong goal for her from a young age. In high school, she participated in JROTC to help her prepare for her trip to the Navy. In August, she entered the Navy’s 10-week program where she attended various trainings. These trainings included classroom studies, practical studies in Navy customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, as well as safety on board ships and airplanes.
The Pacheco family are so proud of her accomplishments and look forward to whatever they are going to accomplish in the future.
