Just a short time ago, Clarksville, TN was a community that was almost written off by the federal government. But the world changed course and the government decided to pump funds into Fort Campbell, Ky and Clarksville, TN. Of course the community has grown leaps and bounds since. Clarksville is a transient and very diverse society. Making this a wonderful cross cultural and economic community. And living here during the past fourteen plus years we've seen many changes and are excited about our continuing growth. This comes however, by planning and hard work by so many in the area. Where would we all be without the dedication and hard work of those that came before us? So when you think about all that we have here, don't forget the people. Without the people, there would be nothing.
In 1981 and 1982 I was here with my parents. No mall, no massive choices of where to dine. And 1986 to 1989 my husband Shaun was a Rakkasan with the 187th at Fort Campbel, KY. My family and I have made Clarksville, TN our home (this time) since 1999. With over 26.5 years in the Army as Infantry, Ranger, Special Ops and numerous duty stations, he recently let me know he can stay in ~ for....29+ years ~ to be continued... Some say it's a hard life, the military life. It's a good life, an interesting life we live. We have four great kids and four beautiful grandchildren. With our children, we have gotten to know so many and have learned so much. The two youngest, really enjoyed scouting and now sports. Volunteering with our children and military families we are able to give back to so many. There are so many wonderful organization's that need our help. Please look inside yourself and do what you can. Everyone has a specialty. You will see and feel the rewards.
