There are a few Indo's in the military service. I have run into many in administration, supply, and even a few like myself in Combat Arms. Right now, I am the Logistics Officer for the Marines at Camp Pendleton

I am a dance teacher (belly dance) and a knitting teacher and artist. One of my children received his BA from Columbia University in History with an emphasis on European Imperialism in the Pacific (inspired by our family history), one is a Chef and comic book artist, my daughter is an architect, and the youngest daughter is receiving her BFA in illustration this weekend.
