A little history about our family.

We retired from active duty with the United States Navy on May 31st, 1989 after serving 23 years. We were fortunate to have been stationed in many different places in this world. We lived in Puerto Rico for 3 years; in Charleston, South Carolina for 1 year; in Rota, Spain for 3 years; in Buffalo, New York for 4 years; in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii for 3 years; in Tampa, Florida for 9 years and now Harrodsburg, Kentucky since March 1992.  We own a 21 acre farm where Marge raises miniature cows, Boar goats and chickens for eggs.

Lee was diagnosed with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) in the spring of 2001.  You can read more about it in the PLS link above.
