💕 We’re proud of our heritage as an active duty military service family.
From March 1979 to March 1983 our family lived in Germany, Maryland/Military District of Washington, and Tidewater Virginia.
Both of our children were also born during those years.
We moved six times in those first four years.
By 1983 when we moved to Missouri I had risen in rank and qualifications so there were fewer assignment billets to post me to.
Thus the pendulum of moving lots stopped and we ultimately lived there for the remainder of our active duty service career and a few years afterwards from April 1983 to February 2001.
Our children essentially grew up in the Missouri Ozarks within the community outside of the major military installation that’s located there.
Terri Anderson Burnett was a music major but went back to school to finish general education courses, taught elementary school, and earned lifetime certification in the state.
We built our first home in 1988.
The photos below include several Polaroid snapshots that my family sent to me when I had to go to the NATO Band and Armed Forces School of Music assignments unaccompanied while they stayed in our home.
Mother Burnett came to live with us there for the first five years after she retired and during the three years I was away on those unaccompanied tours of duty.
