Our middle son, Travis Williams, joined the Army as a drone mechanic in 2012 and has since been discharged. Deployments always weigh heavy on me as a mom. Thankfully, now he is a successful diesel mechanic with a thriving career of his own.
Our second eldest son, Jeremy Chew, joined the U.S. Navy in 2013 and learned the life of a submariner. It was a rough go for his time of service with constant deployments and short visits home. He is now out and is finding success in the IT world like his dad.
Our eldest son, Nathan Chew, followed suit in 2014 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He chose to be on a destroyer rather than under the sea.
He is still on active duty and currently deployed. We have a wonderful daughter-in-law and two beautiful granddaughters, who miss their daddy immensely.
In honor of these brave sons who choose to serve their country and deploy quite often, I have worn my “RED” shirt every Friday since 2012.
RED stands for “Remember Everyone Deployed.” We are tremendously proud of our children and the legacy they have chosen to leave.
