Welcome Home Derrick!
Posted on May 13th, 2016

Many of our neighbors have noticed the “Welcome Home Derrick” banner on Shumacher. Derrick is a 21-year-old who recently returned from a 6-month deployment with the Air Force as an active Airman serving in logistics at Al Udeid Air Base on the outskirts of Doha, Qatar. He is residing with us as he transitions to Active Reserve based in Charlotte and returns to UNCC to complete his studies in Business Administration.  Listening to him talk about his time there gives one a real appreciation of the millions of “moving parts” it takes for the U.S. (or any other military) to coordinate the complex missions they undertake.
Thanks for serving Derrick, all of us at Moss Creek are very proud of you!
