I am from California and my husband is from Connecticut. We met while we were stationed in Hawaii in 2002 and married 3 months later. We transferred on orders to West Point, NY. where we had our two children. Our second child was born with down syndrome and we decided finish our enlistment and move to my home town in California. My husband is now a corrections officer who has been recognized by the Attorney General in D.C. My two children attend school full time now which gives me some time to take classes to become a dental hygienist. When my son doesn't have weekend commitments with cub scouts or basket ball and when my daughter doesn't have gymnastics or ballet scheduled we enjoy family time watching movies, camping, and the beach.
