Disable Veteran/ Single Mom-Writing Christian Children Stories,and poetry.


Background Information

I am 45 yrs. old, a single mother and ex military personnel. I was injured during active duty, had to fight the military to get them to do something about it, got my surgery, but was thrown out; got Honorable Discharge, but not military benefits, only VA, which isn't much. I am doing better now, writing christian poetry, refurbishing old furniture,  volunteer at the American Legion as a Service Officer, still on the military Honor Guard as a bugler, 1st female Vice Commander at the American Legion Post 1, and Female Veteran of the Year 2008-2009 for the state of Oklahoma, and on the Mayor's Veterans Action Board.Born and raised right here in Tulsa, OK;my son is 24 & in college down in TX., at Southwestern Adventist University, Keene. While reading to my nieces and nephews this past Christmas Eve, I was asked how come all the childrens in the Christmas stories have regular names and not names like theirs-that they all are white sounding names and they're not living like them and doing the things they do. So, it's all a fairy tale to them, they said. So, I have written some small short storie for them w/ ethnic names and situtaions and they loved them. I also had made copies for some of my military friends that have children and gave it to them and their kids loved them also and everyone wants more stories. So, I thought I would try it professionally.

Update, I am now the 1st female Commander for the Tulsa, American Legion and the 1st minority female Commander for any American Legion in the state of Oklahoma.

Birth Place
Tulsa, OK USA
Accomplishments

All sort of military ribbons, certificates, award, and medallions,coins. I am also a proud member of the American Legions, 1st female Vice Commander at the American Legion Post 1, Female Veteran of the Year 2008-2009, for the state of Oklahoma

Additional Information

I won a trophy from the International Poetry Ass., a part of the poetry.com craze. I now volunteer as a Service Officer for the American Legion, and I'm on the Mayor's Veteran's Advisory Board, and I am a bugler for the American Volunteer Reservist, for veterans funeral services.
