CONGRATULATIONS AND BEST WISHES TO VIOLA!!

 Today she joined the National Guard. It was a very exciting and emotional event. Viola will be leaving for Missouri to report to boot-camp on March 28. Much sooner than we expected. She has many plans to get in order, and a short amount of time to arrange them. We wish her the best of luck. We know she will do well.
