My house was right there

My father (USAF, Sr. Master Seargent) was stationed at Fort Monroe when I was a child. Fort Monroe is the first home I remember and I have many fond memories. Courtesy of Google Earth I was able to pin-point precisely where our house was…..pretty cool! The rich history of the Fort, the beautiful beaches, the ghost stories, the many trees my brother and I would climb on our way back from the PX where we would get a snack and spend the day wandering around the base. My first school was just down the block where Mrs. Flemming was my kindergarten teacher. My father’s office was around the corner and the NCO Wive’s club where my mother was the president wasn’t far. My big sister was married on base to a Marine whose father was in the Army, best man was in the Navy and one of the groomsmen was in the Coast Guard…….extreme military wedding!
