My cousin and his family are being stationed in the Netherlands. Both my cousin and his wife have been through language courses for Dutch for the move. I cannot yet hope to visit a place so far away, but I know that if I could… They would welcome me with open arms.
I had the opportunity to recently be present at his pinning ceremony at the Air Force Memorial for his promostion to Colonel in the Airforce. This is special since promotion during these present times is extremely hard to come by. I was so very, very proud of him. I listened to a Colonel span Michael’s career in the Airforce, with all the distinguished grad status from the different programs and the high esteem that his superiors and coworkers through his career held him in and the trust they put in him… It was truly humbling.
I hope that I can visit them during their stay in the Netherlands. They have always made me feel like family.
That is special.over 4 years ago
