Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community

Posted February 21, 2014 by

Posted June 28, 2013 by Lt. Col. Mickey Evans

OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. – “She’s so lucky! He has all the luck!” Just like you, I hear these phrases thrown around from time to time.
