We’ve lived in the Pacific, in Europe, on the East Coast and the West Coast and in the middle.  Although Kristin and I were not active duty military members, I felt as though we served our country.  I had dreamed of a degree … but that was delayed.

May America return to the God it was founded upon. Bless you. Karen
