For Staff Sgt. Tamika Hamilton, 60th Logistics Readiness Squadron customer service support, who recently gave birth to her third child October 2015, the policy change was a “gift.” “Getting back into shape after each child was a challenge,” said Hamilton. “When I found out about the policy change, my first thought was, ‘this is a huge present.’”
