    Salute to troops

    Martinez Family

    Hello there my name is Carla Martinez and my husband is Jharean (Jay) Martinez. We are both proud service members. My husband served two tours in Iraq and is medically retiring at the end of April as a SSG in the U.S. Army. His final tour was as a Drill Sergeant for our young Infantry troops at Fort Benning, GA. I'm an Air Force Reserve Major based out of Joint Base Andrews, MD. I have proudly served 13 years both on active duty, in the Reserves, and have served tours in Iraq, Germany, and in Africa. We both come from a long line of service...his father retired as a MSG from the U.S. Army and my father retired as a TSgt from the U.S. Air Force. As my husband hangs up his uniform and transitions to being a military spouse we both are very thankful for the opportunities the military and our country has afforded us and we can think of no nobler profession than serving the world's greatest military!
