The Quiet Truth
Patricia Barbee Received the Gartland Service Award from Savannah's Catholic Bishop, Rev. J. Kevin Boland, December, 2001 at the Cathedral of St. John.
Patricia Barbee was invited to witness the honoring of the MIA, US Air Force Captain Phillips, found and meet his daughters.
The suprise was Patricia was the guest speaker and in seconds spoke from the side of being a Gold Star Wife. Mrs. Phillips had passed, we were told from a broken heart after her daughters were of age.
Patricia had brought a Gold Star Wives of America, Inc. pin in a velvet box to honor their Mom.
The event was hosted by Gulfstream Aerospace of Pooler, GA.

The Honorable Lilly Ledbetter and Patricia Barbee at Ft Stewart, US Army.
The First Bill signed on 20 Jan 2009 by Pres. Obama, was the Lilly Ledbetter Law. The Law gives women equal pay for doing the same work as men.
Mrs. Ledbetter will never benefit from her law because it was ruled it could not be retroactive.

Not Every Day is Work

They are of WWII-Pacific dedicated to Army Sgt. Walter E. Johnson.

15 May 2015 Gold Star Family Memorial Candle Light Service at Fort Stewart, GA,
US Army. With me is WTOC-CBS, Lead Anchor, Sonny Dixon. I had nicknamed him "The Ambassador of The Coastal Empire". Wherever an event to aid a cause, he "HOG Rides" over 1000 miles at least once a year for the Children's Hospital in Tampa, FL. The Ride raises money for the care of the ill children. Sonny does not ride alone, many riders are supports of the children..... Hoo-RAH
Sonny is all heart and lifts the spirits for many. He is known State-wide. I'm honored to know a "ground-bound Angel". "Miss Margaret" his Beloved is his Number One Cheerleader. Their daughter, Susan is Second Cheerleader.
Time has passed. Bishop Emeritus John Kevin Boland honored me with the Savannah Diocese Gartland Award December, 2001. We are still in God's Service. This was a first to have Bishop Emeritus and Bishop Gregory John Hartmayer say the Mass for our new fast growing Catholic Community, 19 Sep 2015.
