August is always a big month for me for some reason. I’m always starting new jobs and moving during that time. The biggest event by far is that August 13th 1996 was my first day in the air force.

peter first day in the airfoce

that was 13 years ago. I did my 4 years and got out in 2000, meaning my 10 years of NOT being in the service is right around the corner. Now that I’m much older, I’m really glad I did my time there instead of in a normal 4 year college. I’m certainly not the only one of my family to do it either, lots of Stolmeiers have and still are in the armed forces and I’m sure many more will be too.

The only person I my mothers side that I know about is my grandmother.


she joined during WWII I think I’ll have to ask my mom to make sure.
