Dedication and Thanks
I dedicate this book to my children and their father, Andrew Smeigh. Between us, we had three great children and four grandchildren (at the time this was written – this will change around the end of the year).
I also dedicate this book to our best friends Charles and Kimbaly Stanley who were there for us during the military years and who helped raise our children, while my husband and I were working. My husband was defending our country and I was serving the Officers of the United States military at their Officer’s club in their times of recreation.
I also thank Charlie for his service to our country and to Kim for standing by him as a dedicated military wife.

This is a work of creative non-fiction. The events are portrayed to the best of my knowledge. A memoir is written from memory and memory can be flawed. If I got anything wrong, I apologize.
