Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

I’ve always been the kind of person who avoids exercise at all costs. Back in high school, I’d choose the weightlifting option in gym class while everyone else went to play indoor soccer.

As I got older, it became much easier to avoid working out because of all the new excuses that adulthood brought to the table. I was always …

Veterans Are Assets

Veterans Are Assets

By: Stephen Kennedy, Senior General Manager, Air Force Hi! I hope everyone can get through what might be a long-winded synopsis of my time in the military, and how TMX Project SERV helps my fellow veterans. I began my military career in 1973, after being fortunate enough to experience being a military brat from elementary to high school. I found myself living most of my young life in Japan and Germany. After graduating high school in Germany, I returned to the states, started college, but found myself missing the excitement and lifestyle associated with being around the military, so I …

In the Marine Corps I was deployed to Iraq, traveled to other countries, and went to different states. I got to see how other places were and learn from other cultures to expand my mind to help with new ways of teaching and learning. When I started a family, I decided to leave the military. …
