|PFC Pam Shannon is the youngest of Betty Shannon’s four children. For those of you that do not know, Shannon is involved in the NASCAR Winston West. She is also a single Mom who has had a real challenge in raising her children, but is very thankful for their outcome so far.
Pam or Pamie to her mom has just celebrated her first anniversary in the Army and has received three promotions already. Her goal is to be a Sergeant in the next 1.5 - 2 years.
Pam is stationed in South Korea at present and recently signed on for a second year there. She was requested by her superior officers to do so and accepted the challenge. She has been top in her academics in her platoon since entering the army and has held onto second in the PT (Physical Training) with only one male who could out do her in scoring (she had 354 out of a possible 400 and he had 365).
Her full name and address follows for anyone who would like to correspond with her. She is limited in time as are her buddies but any and all of them would love to hear an “atta boy” or two.

Pam’s mom said it best when she said, “We should all be proud and thankful for the military and all they do in keeping our freedom.”
Please consider taking a moment to drop a line to Pam. That is a long time to be away from home and with conditions deteriorating her workload is probably increasing. Please let her know you care!
