Congratulations Are In Order

One of the many things a dad gets to do is brag about his daughters. With two of the most wonderful daughters in the world, I find myself seldom talking about them on the blog for privacy reasons. So today, I’m breaking this rule for a mini update and a congratulatory note.

Alexis, my oldest, has said goodbye to her time as an Army Officer and is now in Japan raising two wonderful children, Cole and Eleanor Grace, with her husband Kevin. Their Japan tour should come to a close next May and the next assignment is still a wild guess at best.

Coogan, my youngest, completed her one year assignment in Afghanistan followed by a short tour in Germany as a communications Officer in the Air Force. Today was a big day for Coogan, as she graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a Masters in International Relations, a degree she started while on active duty in Germany. Although getting to Norman OK took a full day of flying, I was very happy to be part of the program. Great job Coogan! Following graduation, Coogan will return to Atlanta, Georgia where she will continue another Masters degree at Goizueta Business School at Emory University.

Two other folks to thank:
Kathy; thanks for being a great mother to our two girls. Happy Mothers Day; and two my Dad, thanks for your coaching and support over all of these years.

So for those of you that know Coogan, let’s play the Waldo Game. Can you find Coogan in the photo below? If you can, drop me a note and I’ll send you something special.

Cheers and happy photo’ing
