Full Name: Vallie Marie Szymanski
Timezone: America/Chicago
Biography: My father was a practicing veterinarian in the United States and was in the Army Reserve during World War II. At that time there was a greater need for veterinarians "stateside". Along came the Korean Conflict in 1952, Uncle Sam needed his expertise in the United States Air Force. A veterinarian in the Air Force you ask? Yes and my parents were jumping for joy and gleefully began a 20 year global odyssey! This Air Force Brat is going to share some of those adventures and the evolution of lifelong career in the glamorous ( ?) aviation industry.
