Tips For Surviving Holiday Travel

Bobbi Pack (Dec. 19, 2013) I am almost old enough to remember when traveling for the holidays was a more “intimate” affair, a matter of going over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house.
OK, nobody really goes over the river and through the woods. Now days we drive to the airport and fly around the world on jam-packed planes to see our friends and families for the holidays. So now the rush is on! Just how will we all survive until January?

We Should All Be Thankful

Bill C (Dec. 16, 2013) When I was a young boy – I thought like a child. I longed for things that gave me immediate gratification like candy, toys and television and I was envious of other children who had more stuff than me. And although I was fortunate to have loving parents who had enough resources to provide for me and our family’s needs. I can often remember being unhappy with what I didn’t have. Fortunately, my parents provided for my safety and security as well as my health and emotional well-being, but I never knew to appreciate the protection afforded to me by them – I took it all for granted!

Storming the beaches of Normandy

The Choice to Serve

Jamaal Wheaton (Dec. 11, 2013) My Grandfather stormed the beaches of Normandy with thousands of his comrades to answer freedom’s call. Proudly he taught me the honor that should be held in serving one’s country. My father served in the United States Air Force and three of my Uncles, in the United States Army. Bronze Stars, Purple Hearts, and Awards of Recognition have donned the walls of nearly every male in my family. Sailors, Marines, Soldiers and Airmen standing tall and ready to carry the banner that my grandfather carried on that beach in 1944.

Freedoms as American ctizens

The Freedom to Choose

Zach Freeman (Dec. 6, 2013) When I began my undergrad at Texas Christian University in the fall of 2009, I wanted to be a firefighter paramedic. There was even a two-week period where I thought I was going to go premed. After that, it was an audio engineer, a ranch manager, a pilot, and so on and so forth. I won’t walk you through the entire process that brought me to starting my own company, but I believe sharing the beginning of that process was important to demonstrate something great about our country: the freedom of choice.

The family of Bobbi Pack at Thanksgiving

Celebrating Thanksgiving Away From Family

Bobbi Pack (Nov. 28, 2013) This year Thanksgiving is a little different for our family because we are stationed thousands and thousands of miles away from family. I really wish we could afford to fly or drive home, but it’s just not in our budget right now. So it’s time for us to make the most of where we are with the friends we have collected over the months we have been at Fort Bragg, NC.

A Veteran’s Thanksgiving

Mike Merit (Nov. 26, 2013) I’m not the type of person who posts what I’m thankful for each day of the week via social media. I do not make a lot of things about my life very public. But, I thought I would take the time to write a few things down this Thanksgiving.

And the Home of the Brave

Bill C (Nov. 25, 2013) I love America – It is the only place on earth where an individual’s hopes, dreams and ambitions can become a reality regardless of their creed, education or socio-economic status. Additionally, it is a place where nearly everyone respects the dedication and sacrifice of the men and women who have served in our nation’s military; many of whom have laid down their lives to defend the freedom’s we enjoy.
