…Those who have attended Mike and Mary Beth’s talks may recognize that as the plane Mike’s dad flew in Vietnam. Pretty cool to get to touch a piece of history!

It was a jam-packed and inspiring day. And more inspiration was to come.

On Friday, Mike and Mary Beth went to Norman North High School to speak to a Constitutional Law class.
