Cheryl is currently serving in the U.S. Navy in Japan and in September will be deployed to Peru.
She graduated from Chase County High School in Imperial in 1982 and went on to dental school in North Platte. Cheryl has done a lot of dental work in the military.
Cheryl enlisted in 1985 and has spent almost 35 of her 50 years serving the United States.
She comes from a long list of family who also have served or are currently in service: her father, two uncles, a nephew and a cousin.
All six of her siblings nominated Cheryl for this week's Sunday Salute; they want her to know how proud they are of her and that they love her very much!
Cheryl, thank you for your service to our country.
