Hi Tracy, I thought I had responded to you earlier but I don't see it. Thank you for having this site. It has already answered several questions I had.

Thank you Tracy, I'm really glad to have a site like this. You have already answered so many questions. The unknown is what is the hardest for me so having a place to find answers is priceless.

Brochures would be perfect. In the past I have just written the web address on a sticky note and then give the parents and their children a short brief about some of the contents on your website.

I appreciate the welcome aboard. As a recruiter, I have always suggested that parents check out this website so I figured it's time to create my own account. Semper Fi

Happy Birthday and Flag Day, too!!!  How appropriate your birthday falls on Flag Day and you've dedicated so much of your life to those that defend our banner of freedom and their loved ones who wait and pray!


May many blessings await you today and always =)
