Officer represents her Vietnamese pride Published May 12, 2022 By Master Sgt. Joshua J. Garcia 51 FW/PA OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- In celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Month, Osan is highlighting members of the AAPI community. This week we highlight 1st Lt Quynh Tran, 5th Reconnaissance Squadron. Tran is the chief of intelligence operations for the 5th RS and also volunteers to be a mission operations commander for the 694th Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Group. Tran represented her Vietnamese heritage by donning the national dress for Vietnam, the "ao dai" while posing in front of a U2S reconnaissance aircraft. The direct translation for ao dai is "long shirt" because the gown resembles a very long blouse, traditionally ao dais are made out of only silk, but newer iterations of the outfit use silk/nylon hybrids to increase breathability and comfort.
