Hello Everyone!!!

I am Margaret Bunton, the new Unaccompanied Tours (UT) Program Specialist.  While I am new to the FLO, I am not new to Unaccompanied Tours.  I have survived three Unaccompanied Tours,  and I am currently experiencing my fourth UT as we speak!  As a former Officer in the United States Army and the spouse of an Officer in the United States Air Force, I have experienced UTs from different perspectives.  I have left family and loved ones behind in order to serve my country…and I have been left behind.   I have also had the wonderful opportunity to share the UT experience with my spouse as a tandem.  Because I understand the importance of having a support network before, during, and after a UT,  I am here to serve and assist you in any way possible during your UT experience. 

I also would like to remind you that there will be a Youth Awards Ceremony on Friday that will honor all children who have experienced or are currently experiencing a UT.  Have a great week, and I look forward to seeing each of you on Friday!

Warm Regards,
