Lynn Green Parris Class of 1989
Army Reserves, 8 Years I served 8 years in the Army Reserves. During this time I was deployed to active duty to Germany during Operation Joint Endeavor. My son was 3 months old & my daughter was 3 years old. It was the hardest thing I had to do in my life but I survived and appreciate my country a lot more. I thought about rejoining after 9/11/01 but my husband would have probably killed me. ( not literally). I am proud of all our service men & women and I wish this country would go back to the patriotism they had after 9/11/01.
