So Now What?

Many of you have been wondering what my Colonel has been
up to since returning from Afghanistan in January.

He's working at a local university for their 
ROTC program and teaching Military Science.

Here's a picture of him at a recent college fair/career day at 
a local high school representing the university...

Talking to a hopeful future student and ROTC candidate...

The poster that is displayed in the high schools informing
the students he will be at their school...

A t-shirt telling it all...
When the Colonel and I first started dating many years ago,
he was in college in the ROTC program.

He's still in the Army Reserves and will be training with them
one weekend a month beginning in September.

We've come full circle.
We love his new job.

Thankful for everything the Lord has provided for us.

  10. Hi Lois,
    So good to see you post!! That is so neat that Col. Phil is teaching ROTC
    at a University, I bet he is great at it too!! So glad you are both happy with his new job, that is awesome.
    What a great job, as he knows exactly what to say to these kids that are in his class since he used to be one of them. Isn't the Lord just amazing!!

    So nice you got to go to the ball.
    I went to a Marine ball once years ago before I was married!
    That was a really neat place where yall stayed, that stain glass is gorgeous and you look gorgeous too by the way!! Very nice pic of you and the Colonel.
    Congratulations and Best Wishes to you and the Colonel on his new job,
    and I am sure it was somewhat gratifying to hear the news on Bin Laden. Since that was majorly the reason they were over there in the first place.
    Bless you sweetie and so good to hear from you. I never go on facebook even tho I do have an acct. with them. Only when I get a message from someone.
    Take care,
    Blessings, Nellie
    Thank Phil again for all his acts
    of service to our country and keeping us safe, we appreciate you guys.

  13. I'm having trouble keeping up with the blogs too, and writing my own. But I'm going to try to set aside time for it, I do miss keeping up. So glad we can connect on FB...So The Colonel is still officially "in" or just "in" the Reserves now? Wow what a difference in job description...and stress level.
