It is our honor to celebrate Colonel Joanna Reagan (Ret) on this Veterans Day.
We asked Joanna to share a little bit about her Nomadés bracelet and story with us.
“Sandy Keelin is my Nomadés representative! Over the past 3-4 years, Sandy and my husband synced up and secretly planned what charm I needed next for my birthday present or my Christmas present. It was a fun reason for Sandy, Keith (my husband) and I to get together for lunch or tea. Somehow, they always seem to slide out and exchange packages in the parking lot (charms and money). It saves my husband from trying to figure out “what do I get my wife for her birthday or for Christmas?” And it is a fun reason to see Sandy. Over the past couple of years, I have been able to have a representation of almost all of my 13 duty assignments.”
Joanna doesn’t have a “favorite” charm. “I love them all! I love that my charm bracelet as it tells my story, if someone wants to ask!”
Thank you, Joanna, for your service to our great country. Thank you for keeping our soldiers healthy and well fed. Thank you for your continued service through the DOD. Happy Veterans Day to you and to all who have served.
