My family was recognized by the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Volunteer Family of the Year Redstone/Huntsville Chapter. It was an absolute honor and privilege to receive this award.  LTG Formica hosted the event at the command headquarters via VTC with outlying area units.

One of my responsibilities was to host the Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) Conference each year. Below is 2011 a weeklong conference from Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Precept Training

Whenever I went to Precept Training, there she was, the founder of Precept ministry Kay Arthur. Great learning experiences and meeting her was a bonus!

Soldier and Family Program Manager

As a community volunteer as a Soldier and Family Program Manager, I have had many privileges and the honor of meeting high ranking Army Generals and receiving their nice comments about my work.  
O' Lord, How Great Thou Art!
There it was, a tall white Cross was standing by the seaside of Kwajalein.  In February 2012, I traveled to Kawjelein with the Commanding General of U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command LTG/R Richard Formica. As a Soldier and Family Program Manager, I went there to make the quality of life assessments for the Army families.

Meeting great baseball and football players is always a great pleasure
