Sandy Hancock Gruters


We have been traveling all summer, still not home. Just checked the internet at our son's house and so we will just send a bio instead of the pictures. Will forward family pictures later just in case you can do something with them.


After graduating from FSU, I married Guy, an Air Force Fighter Pilot, and our life has been an adventure.


Travel: Twenty two moves and various trips, including to Asia and Europe. In recent years Guy has been speaking on the POW experience and I accompany him on many of the trips. 


Challenges: Guy was shot down two times and was five years as a POW in North Vietnam. Raising seven children has provided continual chances to excel.


Joys: Seven grandchildren and another on the way and time for the two of us.


Our children: Dawn is an electrical engineer in northern Virginia. Sheri is married in Ft. Carson, Colorado. Ginger is teaching English and Bioethics in Seoul, Korea. Ryan is a business analyst in Ripley, West Virginia. Amber is an MD and an Army Doctor in Ft. Lewis, Washington State. Tyler is an aerospace engineer in Warner Robbins AFB, Georgia. Misty is an OR nurse at the U. of VA Medical Center. From our home base in Ohio, we travel in many directions.


We are really looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up in October.
