Maria's "Claim to Fame"
While serving in the U.S. Army as a squad leader in South Korea, Maria was selected to meet with former president Jimmy Carter in 1980. During breakfast, Maria suggested that service men and women be allowed to wear tennis shoes instead of uncomfortable standardized military leather boots during extensive training. This suggestion was implemented throughout most U.S. bases and several bases abroad, and has since led to more consideration in the customization of breathable military footwear, hence increasing performance, and reducing painful orthopedic conditions.
