Helen has always been affiliated with Ranger, Texas.  Even though she grew up in the military, summer vacations were spent here with her grandparents.  As an adult, Helen joined the Army and spent twenty years as an intelligence analyst and cryptanalyst, but continued spending vacations here with family.  After retiring from the Army, she finished her Bachelors in Intelligence Studies and a Masters in Ancient History which she used to become a History professor at two local colleges. 

Her many experiences include being stationed in Germany when the Wall came down, being stationed in Korea when Kim Il-sung died, and a tour of combat duty in Iraq.  Feel free to stop by the library to discuss the military life or ask questions about research and studying.
