I was born shortly after
my father's return home from Vietnam, in "73 to be exact. As you can imagine, being a military "brat" I moved around
for the first 6 or 7 years of my life, before my father's retirement in "80. I was always interested in my father's
military career, and the interest grew as I got older. I even wanted to join myself, but my dad was dead set against
my enlistment. Then I found out that I couldn't join anyway due to certain medical factors.
Currently I am married with
two beautiful little girls. My husband is also a military "brat", and also served in the military for a brief period.
We are raising our girls to have great respect for the armed forces and those who serve in them.
I have recently started a search for the soldiers who served with my father in Long Binh, Vietnam.
I have done numerous hours of reading on the different aspects of the Vietnam War, and have developed an even greater
respect for the men and women who served there. Thanks to several men I have contacted and spoken with, I have found
more resources for my search.
