My Husband's Story

My husband, Odis, was unemployed for over two years. He worked for a company for almost 37 years. The Company went bankrupt. He tried to find a job for two years and decided to go back to school.

The weekend before school started he was offered a, but was enrolled in school. He told them to contact him in December when the semester ended. They did contact him again and he started working and went to school fulltime, too. However, the salary was about a third of what he previously made. He is still working there today. However, it travels over 100 miles per day to work.
