  • ".... I always think there's magic in a little bit of everything..."

  • "...Why is our name Lambert?"

    "Recently, my 8-year-old and 11-year-old daughters asked if there was a meaning to our last name. Where did it come from? Why is our name Lambert? I stared blankly back at them, I didn't know.

  • "...I started developing comic book characters based on people in my life..."

    "I love to draw. When I was a kid, my dad started challenging me to draw things.

I guess it was his way of bonding with me. When I was in high school, I started developing comic book
  • "... She would tell me that I was the best thing that ever happened to her...."

    "When I was little, my parents got a divorce. My mom was an emotional person and had a rough time afterward. It seemed she never had any peace. Often we would go for a drive in her white Camaro so she could let off steam. Whenever she got tired of driving we would find a quiet spot, lay on top of the car and watch the stars while listening to a
  • "... Whenever I feel slighted I think back to what my father said and the examples he set for me..."

    "By the time I was 10 years old I was developing an inferiority complex because of the color of my skin. It seemed to me that the media and American culture in general alluded to darker skin as being inferior. But my father taught me otherwise. He conveyed the success of other African-Americans as well as his own successes. He pointed to a local
  • "... I like knowing that I am a vital part of mission success ..."

    After high school I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. At 17, I participated in the local Police Department cadet training for youth and knew that was not for me. Then I participated in the Fire Department explorer training and knew that wasn't for me either. After that, I tried construction, again, it wasn't for me. Finally, I ended up

It's my first time being away from home and my first experience with deployment. The hardest day of my life was the day I had to put down my 17 year old dog, but this deployment is the
