Sobre I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, but during the 1960s my dad moved us all over the country until he died when I was eleven. My mom moved us to Fresno, California, where I graduated from High School. After a couple of years of college I went to the The Salvation Army School For Officer Training and met my wife, Cheryl. We served as officers in The Salvation Army for 22 years before settling in Olympia, Washington. We have two adult daughters and three grandchildren. In June 2010 we were reaccepted as Salvation Army officers and accepted an appointment in Casper, Wyoming. In June 2012 we were transferred to Golden State Divisional Headquarters in San Francisco.
