Dana was raised in Minnesota and Vance is from North Carolina and was stationed on USS Forrestal and at NAS Mayport. We have been married for 24 years and have 2 grown daughters. We stay pretty busy because we have several businesses. We love living on the water and enjoying the outdoor weather with the pool. We love watching movies on the big screen in the house.
