I will tell you that there is no one, NO ONE who does more for our local troops than Carlene. She does this because she absolutely loves service members and their families. She burns the candle on both ends to do everything she can to support their needs – and does so not for her own profit or ego, but often from the shadows giving others the limelight. She so deserved this award!!

I am very touched by this blog entry and I have to tell you that I couldn't complete what I do today without the continued help and support with people such as Gary Brackett from the Tacoma Pierce County Chamber of Commerce and Ken Swarner from the "Fort Lewis Ranger." Both business partners and very good friends share the same aspirations and commitment to the military community. Again, thanks for the very nice blog.... You're the best! Carlene Joseph
