• We're glad to see that Alzheimer's Disease is finally getting the attention it deserves as far as efforts to combat it. Health experts met recently in Washington to make plans for the first national plan to fight the horrid disease. The top goal in the early draft of the National Alzheimer's Project Act is to prevent and effectively treat the malady by 2025.

I grew up in a military family bouncing from place to place about every four years so picking the right time to move with minimal emotional repercussions for our daughter was important to us. Growing up, I tried to understand that my parents were making major sacrifices for our country and respected that. With that said, as a kid it always came down to the fact that it took a lot of effort to pick up and make new ...
