A native of Maryland, Linda is proud of the patriotic roots of her hometown Baltimore…home to Fort McHenry and the “Star Spangled Banner”. Her dad served in the Army during World War II and her nephew was a USMC MP who served in Afghanistan. Linda is a legal secretary and has several family members in law enforcement. Linda is involved in numerous fundraising events to help animals, children and the military. She presently has two longhaired miniature daschunds and two box turtles. Having joined AAUSS in 2013, Linda is eager to share with others the deep fulfillment of adopting military troops.
