West Point career Soldiers marry, serve and retire together
PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii - Two U.S. Army officers who began their own careers 27 years and one day prior, by commissioning one another, retired from their individual service to the nation just as they started it, together. Both Col. Bethany L. Lee, Assistant Chief of Staff, G-1, 9th Mission Support Command, and Lt. Col. Carleton A. Lee, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command J6, became a part of Army history with a combined total of 54 years, 4 months and 8 days of service to the nation. Now, from the deck of the USS Missouri, where the treaty ending World War II in the Pacific was officially signed, they completed their Army careers. (Photo by Crista Mary Mack, U.S. Army)
