Brittany and Zachary are sister and brother. They joined the Air Force in 2006. She is 21 and works in Personnel at Lajes, Azores. He is 19 and works in Civil Engineering at Osan AB, South Korea.
We are a very close family and keep in touch by E-mail, Web cam and phone calls. They are fourth generation military. Their dogs Spencer and Samson miss them. We are so proud of them for serving their country!! We miss them SO much and pray for their safety and the safety of all military members every day.
