During the Nam POW reunion at the Wyndham River walk Hotel San Antonio, Lee and Mary took time to visit with five history students and their teacher Coach Bryan Degner from Boerne (TX) Middle School North. They are preparing for state competition in a history project and have already done considerable research on the POW experience. They came with a list of excellent questions and took extensive notes.
Coach Degner’s leadership these young people was so evident and reminded us of the power of teachers to influence the next with generation of youth. Kudos to teacher and students for the excellent work they are doing. It was an honor to be with them.

Lee believes deeply in giving back to the community, and he and his wife Mary are longtime supporters of the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program.
Deployment and mobilization can be a very stressful time for service members and their families—in particular, multiple deployments as they’re experiencing today. The Yellow Ribbon Program’s mission is to assist, collaborate, and partner with agencies at the lowest level possible in order to provide service members, veterans, and their family members with informational events and activities, referrals, and proactive outreach services throughout the phases of deployment or mobilization.
We’re grateful for this worthwhile organization – Click to Learn More!
