While living in Oklahoma, my husband worked for the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office when the Federal Building was bombed.  During the next several weeks, working closely with his friends and family trying to save as many lives as could be saved, he became a stronger man.  Then his Army unit was called up to assist in the wreckage, to identify body parts, keep the peace, and many more tasks.  Now my husband is in the US Army at the OKC Recruiting BN which is located in the same building where he had helped so many years ago.  He is a very proud service member with over 18 years active duty and with the “no quit” attitude in his actions, he will give us many more years to come continuing to serve his country.
