Bring on Lucky 13!

Here it is! The obligatory end-of-the-year slideshow! I hope this 2012 recap brings a little bit of joy into your New Year’s Eve, and serves as an album for the future.

There are so many tough things we can remember about 2012, but so many happy and awesome things too – the birth of babies, weddings, 60th birthdays, new jobs, amazing trips, and Army almost beating Navy (heartbreaker). Tonight as the ball drops, hug your loved ones and think back on all the good things that 2012 has brought us. It can only get better in Lucky 2013.

My love to you all and Happy New Year – I can’t wait to spend the next year (and many more) at your sides!

It’s a bit that Good Morning America does, and not only is it heartwarming, but it’s pretty inspiring to see all of the different things people cherish in their lives. As a group I think we did pretty well, although it seemed a bit of a challenge to stay within the rules. It doesn’t matter, this video is awesome.

Congratulations to Bill Schutsky, Army Hall of Fame 2012!

Friday night, the United States Military Academy at West Point inducted its 2012 class into the Army Sports Hall of Fame. Among those inductees was Bill Schutsky, a 1968 graduate from the academy, Army basketball captain, and our great family friend.

Not only was Bill a fantastic basketball player, he was a distinguished Army officer, and a great coach. And he is an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and friend. There is no person I know more deserving of this honor, and West Point is lucky to have such a wonderful person as a part of its community.

So, congratulations to Bill and his family! This is a great day. I feel so honored to have been able to make the above video to honor Bill’s sports career and I can hope that it does him justice. To Bill!
