I have had a long line of relatives who have served in the military, and have always known to give them respect and honor. I never really comprehended what that totally meant until I did a paid internship for 2 summers after college at the Carswell Air Force Base. I worked in the medical department with the Navy but for the Marines in 2005 & 2006. I did mostly data entry for the medical records. I will never forget on the way to work as my mom and I went into the base we would have to pull for van over to a stopping place, put it in Park, and stand (or sit in my case) and salute the American flag at 8 AM every morning as the National Anthem played over the intercom. It would give me such a warm feeling, and make me teary eyed. I totally loved every minute of working there (seeing men in uniform all day wasn’t to shabby either!!) Working there definitely gave me a greater appreciation for the men and women in our Military.
With all my love and respect, I honor each and every one of you who have served and are continuing to serve our country. It is because of people like you that we are free!!
I would like to give a shout out to Camp Craig Allen’s very own board member Glen Bentley for giving his service and continuing to give his time to our Armed Forces! We love you Glen!
Rolling on, Stephanie
