I was honored to have shared my home with folks from Washington DC, Alabama, and Saint Louis. Pictured above are Steve and Hong Perry with Daniel and Sara Broaddus.
Steve retired from the Army as a medic after serving overseas in Iraq. He is presently teaching Leadership Tactics in the ROTC department at the University of South Alabama . His wife Hong had her own story to tell as she was a refugee from Vietnam.
Daniel served 2 tours in Vietnam as an Army sergeant. Today Dan is a 100 % disabled veteran with prostrate cancer that has been linked back to his exposure to agent orange while he was in Vietnam.
Martha and Warren who are not pictured, meet and married while in the Army. Today Warren has retired from the Army and is now also teaching leadership skills in a ROTC program. Martha is still active and involved in a nuclear program.
I had no idea that I would be so touched by this experience, giving back a little to those that have done some much for us felt really good.
