2. We're interviewing military children because April is the month of the military child! Join us as we ask questions to some of our favorite kids and adults, ages 4 to 16.
We’re interviewing Betty Turnbull, Author of “A Sergeant in the House” where she tells the story of Lenny who desperately wants a puppy. His father is in the military, the family must move frequently, and Lenny is still very young to care for an animal, so Lenny strikes a bargain: When his daddy becomes a sergeant, Lenny can have a puppy. When his father is deployed to war, Lenny learns what it means to be responsible, to care for his family, and to help around the house. A dreaded phone call brings the news that Lenny’s father has been injured and is being sent home. When Lenny’s father explains that this means he’ll never become a sergeant, Lenny realizes that what he truly wants is his daddy–puppy or no puppy. Enter to win a copy here!

I am a husband and father of three ages 2-6.
I grew up in Madison, Ohio and joined the United States Marine Corps following high school graduation.
Six year Marine Corps veteran with an honorable discharge at the rank of Sergeant.
Four years as a civilian aircraft mechanic on the Presidential fleet to include Airforce One with a secret security clearance.
Currently on the Mentor on the Lake Parks and recreation board.
Upon becoming engaged to be married, my wife and I decided that northeast Ohio was the best place to raise children and that this would be our final relocation.
The same desire to make a difference that led me to enlist in the USMC has led me to take an interest in serving the Mentor on the Lake community.
