I have worked with the Texas Military FAmily Foundation (TMFF) since the spring of 2003. At that time I served as the Command Sergeant Major of the 90th Regional Readiness Command, United States Army Reserve. During that time period my command had many units mobilizing and preparing for deployment to Afghanistan and Iraq. Part of my responsibility was to monitor this process and ensure that the Soldiers were being properly trained and cared for by Fort Hood. It was while working to solve problems and improve conditions for mobilizing Soldiers that I came in contact with the TMFF. From that time, until I left my position in 2007, I worked with the TMFF on many occasions and they were able to improve conditions and solve many problems for Soldiers. Representatives of TMFF (especially Julie Curtis-Winn) worked tirelessly to assist Soldiers of the National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve, and Active Army. They were their advocate, willing to contact or confront anyone at any level to gain the required assistance. They gave freely of their time, effort, and personal income to try and make life better for our Soldiers in need. Due to their tireless efforts the TMFF is able to provide assistance on a 24 hour basis as well as providing a place for Soldiers to relax away from the stress and pressure of their military jobs. This was all accomplished through hard work, long hours, and personal sacrifice.

When I left for Afghanistan, Julie was the last civilian I saw. I remembered her kind words and actions, as well as thousands of other soldiers. Upon my return, Julie once again touched my heart- just being there and lending a simple hand. Julie was the first volunteer in our current war's soldier support effort, and, in my opinion, the only one that still marches on for them. Julie made me a better soldier and a better person.
