|In High School|
My mom worked outside the home before most women did. She joined the Air Force and served our country until they kicked her out because she was pregnant with me. Back in the 1950s you were not allowed to serve if you were pregnant, it did not matter that she was married to my father, it was the rule. They did not have cute maternity uniforms and such then, because a woman's place was in the home.

My mom was a women's "liber" before it was popular because she was always one step ahead. She set an excellent example for me in life. She showed me how to be strong and how to take care of things when my dad was not around because the Air Force had sent him off somewhere for a year or how ever long.
