Anything else we should know? My family and I migrated to Arizona in 1995 to pursue the ‘American Dream’. Arizona, specifically, was chosen due to the similarity in weather and environmental conditions. However, it is WAAAY hotter here than it ever got in Johannesburg.
It was an honor to serve in the United States Air Force for 6 years, to repay America at least a little gratitude for the opportunities she has awarded me.
