- My passion is helping others defend themselves and their families. I am an NRA Certified pistol instructor, a NRA Chief Range Safety Officer, leader of TWAW Shooting Chapters - North Cincinnati, and the state leader of TWAW Shooting Chapters - Ohio. I also have a heart for the Lakota people and lead mission teams to the Pine Ridge Reservation each year, am founder and director of Backpacks For Pine Ridge,, and do various volunteer work in my own community. My greatest joy is being a grandma and hanging out with my husband of 30+ years.

A Sad Day
I was sick to hear that two of our soldiers were missing and even sicker to hear that the worst had come to pass. My heart goes out to the families of Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.
We still have one missing. Matt Maupin has been missing in Iraq since April of 2004. He is from my area and we have not forgotten him. We are still praying and hoping that he comes home safe and sound.
