And, we are expecting big things from her in the years to come". Sheree was previously awarded a McPherson College Dean's Academic Scholarship. She is the daughter of Jeanne Kriley, Esbon.

This is the second time in their 12 years of married that Roy has been called to active duty with the 425th Transportation Company, Salina. He was in Saudi Arabia for six mdnths during Desert Storm and was called into active duty Nov. I, 2002. He is now in Kuwait and Shelly is anxiously awaiting his return. When Roy was called in November he .reported at Fort Riley and after one overnight stay back at home in Salina, left Nov. I for the Middle East. Shelly had no idea where he was going at that time, until days later when he called home. "He still couldn't tell me ex- actly where he was, but he did say hc had arrived in Kuwait safely." Roy is a mechanic. Shelly adds, "He keeps the fuel tangers and jeeps going." .,,+ For Shelly and three children, Joshua, 12; Phillip, J0 and Kendra, 8, the days ancl nights+seem hmg. As a single parent, Shelly finds she lean~; heavy on and is thankful lot the sup- port of their families. Her parents, Delvin and Nancy Hanson, Mankato, often visit helping where needed. Let- ters are written almost daily by Shelly to Roy and often she makes and mails his favorite chocolate chip cookies to him. She adds, "It's been hard on the children and it's certainly hard on Roy to be away from them." When Roy served during Desert Storm, Shelly was pregnant with their first child, so this is the first tirne he has had to leave his children. Shelly said it is hard to be a single parent, with her husband gone. Shelly said she de- pended on Roy to do the usual house- hold repairs and car maintenance. koy is also missed as Josh~la's Boy Scout leader and helping out with the daughter's softball activities.
