Four Sisters Make Air Force History

They're the first family to graduate four from the academy

(User Submitted) – Two Air Force Academy cadets helped make history this week as they tossed their hats in the air. Twin sisters Amanda and Alicia Robillard joined their two older sisters as academy graduates, marking the first family to graduate four sisters. Older sister Lauren (class of 2007) is a helicopter pilot at Fairchild AFB in Washington and Nicole (class of 2009) serves as airfield operations officer at Arizona's Luke AFB, notes the SpringsMilitaryLife blog.
