Expeditionary Force by Craig Alanson Wiki

Captain Irene Streibich is of German (father) origin. Her mother's last name is Ramona so it can be speculated that she has Spanish or Latino roots. Her mother was a U.S. Army Blackhawk pilot and that's what gave her the notion to become a pilot as well.

As a Lieutenant, Streibich was a pilot recruited by Specialist Shauna Jarrett to fly a "Buzzard" at the direction of Emby (zPhone hacker aka Skippy the Magnificent) to activate Giant TerraWatt MASER Projectors under the surface of Paradise/Gehtanu.

After the Mavericks rescued Derek Bonsu, he became her co-pilot.

She was promoted to Captain.

Striebich and Bonsu become romantically involved during their missions on Gehtanu, under the local Ruhar Planetary Government, uncovering the remaining MASER projectors.
