Best friends make the best family!

Jim and Jamie have been best friends for almost two decades. They're a couple of geeky athletes who discovered through distance that they really loved each other more than best friends typically do. And here they are a decade later, married with a blooming family... and their saga continues!

Serving as a military family each member does what they can to support the troops! James serves his country as a soldier, James serves as a manager for a military support agency and as a POC for the MPN, and Donald makes art and baked good for the troops... why not do your part?


Proud to be...
by Jamie McManamon

I am an American and proud to be,
In this country where I am free,

To show my pride on the 4th of July,
I raise my hand up to my right eye,

And salute the flag of colors so true,
Yes, I am proud of that red, white, and blue!

  • Wars not make one great.
  • There are alternatives to fighting.
  • If once you start down the dark path, forever it will dominate your destiny.
  • Don't give into hate- that leads to the dark side.
