Dawn Fiore, the wife a Reserve pilot assigned to the 326th Airlift Squadron, Dover Air Base, Del., strikes a fighting stance Nov. 16, 2012, at the base fitness center. Fiore discreetly battled multiple sclerosis for eight years until an online feature interview in 2012, when she went public about wrangling her medical illness with fitness and martial arts. After being diagnosed with MS, Fiore went on to earn a first degree black belt in taekwondo and practices other martial arts, including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo and Haidong Gumdo.
