Speaking of military families

Tina Moore of Manette is immersed in the military. Her father-in-law, Wes Moore of Bremerton (see below), is a retired Naval commander. Her mother, Connie Kohler, is an major in the Air Force based at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma and recently returned from Afghanistan. Her stepfather, Glenn Kohler of Virginia, is a retired Air Force officer. Her father, Bernie Golbeck of Port Orchard, served in Vietnam.

“I am surrounded by the military but never realized it sunk into my almost-3-year-old son until I went to drop him off with his grandparents and saw him saluting the flag as his grandpa raised it up that morning,” Moore said in a email sent with the photo below.

Her mother-in-law, Vicki Moore, said, “Isn’t that the cutest? He salutes the flag every time he’s here when grandpa raises it.”

When Tina dropped Rezyn (it’s an old family name) off on Friday, sure enough he saluted dutifully. Tina snapped away and put the photo on Facebook, where it got many likes and positive comments.

Thanks for sharing, Tina.

Remember, you have until Jan. 15 to nominate a child for Military Child of the Year in a nationwide contest. Rezyn is too young, alas. The contest is open to nominees 8 to 18 years old.
