Cholene Espinoza admits that she is always on a mission. More than a dozen years ago, she was the second woman to fly the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft in the U.S. Air Force. In 2003, she took a job as a military correspondent for Talk Radio News Service and was embedded with the U.S. Marine Corps First Tank Battalion in Iraq.

Now her mission is rebuilding a church and community center devastated a year ago by Hurricane Katrina. Since September, Espinoza and her partner, Ellen Ratner, have made numerous trips to Harrison County, Miss., and helped raise more than $600,000 for a community education center there.
