When Kate Norley's mother, Pam Mannion, meets friends back in Maryland, conversations center around catching up.Because this is common...TOO common.
"My daughter's at Princeton."
"My daughter's at UVA [University of Virginia]."
"This person's at Georgetown."
Then, someone will ask Mannion about Norley.
"When she says, 'She's in the Army,' they say, "Oh, I'm so sorry." Like it's somewhere I had to go," Norley said.
Don't be sorry, Norley said.
When did service before self become a sad thing?
Anyway...its an uplifting story about a woman who put service to others before herself...treat yourself to the story here.
