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!
