Today is the eighty-fifth birthday of my husband Jack. It’s quite a milestone for him.
He graduated from Middlebury College with a degree in Economics, and then joined the Army, and went to flight school. He served in Vietnam and when he was discharged he did so as a Captain.
Despite his college degree, he took the path to his real love, flying, and got a job with Pan American World Airways.
He was stationed in both Hong Kong and Berlin Germany. Berlin was his favorite posting.
He was married to his first wife, Jan and they had two wonderful children, Jonathan and Jessica. They owned an Apple Farm, and they were married for 25 years.
I met Jack many years ago and we were friends for a long time. We saw each other through many difficult times in life, and eventually after both of us went through painful divorces, we started to hang out together. Eventually, we got married and started our life together. It’s been 35 years! How the time has flown.
