Laurie has been married to Mike for 39 years.She started working for the Civil Service in 1971 in their accounting department at the Naval Amphibious Base. Two years later, she transferred to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Recruit Training Command, handling their entire budget. She was the first nonmilitary person to have the job. After about two years, she then took a promotion into the accounting and payroll department of the entire base where she remained for several years.
In January of 1980, Laurie quit Civil Service and went to work for Mike full time. Now she works part time, doing bookkeeping, except during the tax season when they both work very long hours. She assembles, checks for errors and mails out all the income taxes which come out of the office. One day a week she has fun caring for their first grandchild. Otherwise, for fun she will train for the Breast Cancer 3day. Raising awareness for breast cancer is her passion, so she walks the 3day, 60 miles, whenever she can.
