Outstanding story of love and support.
My Spouse is the daughter of a career Air Force officer and she herself is an Army Vet. The toughest job in the service is the Military Spouse. To serve as a Spouse with honor and dedication takes a special person. My wife certainly is.
Thank You for telling of your service.

So Hallie Patterson, let me get this straight: you cold-called NASA and got them to hire you?! After I let that marinate for a moment, from my experience, that 1) makes you a rockstar and also 2) pretty much sums up the type of "get it done" mentality I've seen many times from military spouses. As a mil spouse, you've accepted a life of sacrifice and service to your country, but have probably been "thanked for that service" far fewer times than your spouse who wore the uniform. Thanks for sharing your story. I'm sure your path to success will be helpful to many other spouses who are overwhelmed with the career challenges that currently seem daunting.
