As a little girl, I grew up watching old WWII shows with my dad, like Flying Leathernecks with John Wayne and Baa Baa Black Sheep. I recall telling him that I wish I could have been a boy, so I could fly planes like they did on TV. I would thumb through my dad’s old photos from his army days in Korea, looking forward to my turn to serve. Military aviation was in my childhood soul. My dad shared with me the tales of the transit to Korea, sleeping in a hammock on a ship – sea sick all the way. These were the earliest memories of my dream of becoming a military pilot.

For service members stationed away from loved ones over the holidays, a Christmas tree and care pack delivery bring memories of home and messages of thanks. With that in mind, FedEx has joined forces with the United Service Organizations (USO) to provide care packs for service members deployed overseas, and with the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation to deliver Christmas trees through the Trees for Troops program.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the site in Maryland of the U.S. Civil War’s heaviest one-day battle. The Battle of Antietam was a turning point in so many ways for our, at the time, young nation. The visit was timely in the context of this election year, and the transfer of power that is now under way following this week’s election.
