Where did you meet your spouse/partner? Is he/she a Mac grad? If so, what year?

I met my wife way back in 1981, married for 8 years, then went our separate ways. She is not from Mac.

Comments:

I go by BeauJory, composite of Beauregard Jory. I have been blessed with a wonderful Godly life filled with awesome adventures! I recently returned to Texas after a one year remote deployment to Turkey to resume my post as the Museum Curator for Dyess AFB, Abilene, Texas. Turkey is the eighth county where I lived, all courtesy of the USAF. I operate a sweet Air Force heritage center (museum) and maintain 34 static aircraft. For the prior fifteen years I was an Historian for the USAF. I was stationed at Hill AFB, Utah among the LDS-Mormanville people. They graciously accepted my presence. I was also stuck living in Haupstuhl, Germany for five years -- yes, sometimes we have to make sacrifices for the good of the nation and planet Earth. The USAF deployed me to Qatar, Krygyzstan, and Afghanistan to document the war history.
While in Turkey, I escorted several Airmen and civilians to the town of Tarsus, hometown of St Paul. I baptized 10 Airmen at the St Paul's Well. My life began in the Phillipenes. I also lived in Pakistan as a child. I was a paralegal in SA for 20 years, then retired to do whatever God continues to led me.
I graduated from SWSTU, commisssioned a 2d Lt in the USAF, went to pilot training at Laughlin AFB, Del Rio, Texas, injured in a parachute incident, and was discharge from active duty. I worked as a Legal Assistant for twenty years, then took off to complete three Master's degrees (SWTSU, Sul Ross ST). I also taught Social Studies to 5-8 Graders in Marathon, Texas.
My walk with god began as a Freshman at Mac and He and I have been on an awesome journey with most of my church-time involved in Children/Jr High Youth ministry. I am also a Girl Scout, serving in various capacities as an adult volunteer. Lately I have conducted Girl Scout Badge workshops.

School Story:

I totally enjoyed my experiences at Mac. Yes, I was a ROTC freak. My favorite daughter got to attend twenty years later after they converted the facilities into the Mac Detention Center.
I will attend the 45th Reunion. Soooo looking forward to meeting yall again after all these years! Are we really that frikin old!?!

Yes, David and I were those polished Jr Army ROTC Cadets who relished the regimentation in our chaotic world of early '70s:  A time where people ridiculed us for having an honorable value system.  David lived his dream with utmost certainty and I am comforted to know that God is pleased.
