Ramstein Elementary Deployment Buddies

Grace Anne had the honor of volunteering today at Ramstein Elementary's Deployment Buddies end of the year picnic.  She was able to share her books, deployment tips and talk with kiddos who currently have a deployment parent.  There were around 60 attending the event including the elementary students, high school 'bigs', parents and volunteers.  What fun we had together encouraging and learning their stories today.  Ramstein Enlisted Spouses Association (RESA) sponsored us and gave each Deployment Buddy a signed copy of the book to take home!
