Why R.E.D. Friday

Why R.E.D. Friday

Submitted by: Kris D. Reece, Sr.  General Manager – TMX Certified Trainer R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) is a very important movement for my family and I.  We, like a lot of families, have a rich military history going back to the 1800’s in our hometown of Ellijay, Georgia.  My son decided that he wanted to serve his country at the age of 16 to follow in my father’s footsteps into the United States Air Force.  Soon after getting his permanent station in Little Rock, AR he met his wife who is also active USAF.  Two months after their marriage, she was …

The “Lost-Cause Child”

The “Lost-Cause Child”

Submitted by: Tammy Bonser, InstaLoan Customer Service Representative Sarasota, FL Let’s be honest, when people think of Down Syndrome many of them immediately think of chunky people stuck in institutions, but I’m proud to say that is not true. I found out my son, Dale, was going to be born with Down Syndrome when I was 30 weeks pregnant. I was only 28 years old and had to get ready to raise a child who would need just a little more help than most babies. He came home from the hospital on oxygen, with a feeding tube, and required constant …

I always wondered that if I was never a domestic violence survivor, if I would be as determined and courageous enough to go through life with the highest expectations for myself. It wasn’t until almost dying that I truly understood the power that I personally had to be whomever I wanted to be. I am not regretful of my experience; in fact, I owe my success to my experience. Without …

Young and Fearless- My Journey Through Breast Cancer…

Submitted by: Amber Black, Director of Human Resources/Workforce Management Goodness, where do I begin?  Well for starters, I could explain the utter shock of my diagnosis at age 32 considering there was NO prior history of breast cancer in my family.  I was diagnosed on 6/19/2015 with Triple Negative (TNBC) Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) of my left breast, Stage 1 and Grade 3. Now, once you become well versed in the topic of cancer, you begin to learn that the Stage determines how far along the cancer is when you’re diagnosed and is based on how large the tumor is, …

Memorial Day – A Day of Remembrance

Memorial Day – A Day of Remembrance

Submitted by: Jamie Lane, Director of Internal Communications  “Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again.

It’s a day to be with the family and remember.” Ronald Reagan, 1986 Leading up to this Memorial Day, I reached out to several of our veteran and current military team members so we could share their …

What Memorial Day Means To Me; Joseph Trella

What Memorial Day Means to Me Submitted by: Joseph Trella, District Director of Operations When I was young man, Memorial Day was a holiday where we recognized the many sacrifices members of the military made for our Country. But until I joined the United States Marine Corp, I never knew how deep those sacrifices went or how those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country should be honored. I have always wanted to serve my Country. I knew that becoming a United States Marine was my destiny as a young man. I joined the Marine Corps based on the …
