BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --

“My life is flexibility, as a military spouse and a proud parent of two children, I have to be ready to adapt at whatever life throws my way. My wife and I are stationed at separate bases and have an 18-month-old son and a new born daughter of only 26 days, but we make it work. Being a C-5 Galaxy loadmaster, my wife can be TDY for days or weeks at a time, but we make it work. Our experience as new parents has been exciting as well as challenging at times, but we make it work. Some people would use the word sacrifice, but when i think about my kids, only love comes to mind.”
