Ginger, a native of Jamestown, NC attended UNC-CH and through mutual friends the two of them met and the rest, as they say, is history. In the history, are a lot of details and experiences that have forged a steady resolve in the two of them to see through the Vision for their family which includes the Vision for Whole Vet.
“We have come to realize over the last few years that if we, a person, continues to ‘think’ the same way they always have, then they will always ‘live’ the same way. We have found that, even through the trials and challenges, on the other side there is a beauty to life. That burns inside of us to share with others so they too can enjoy and embrace this beautiful life we have been blessed with. It is available to every person on this earth. Our passion, our desire, is to see that realized in every veteran and active duty military family. We can indeed say ‘We love you’. The future is indeed bright and great days are ahead. Be encouraged, live in vision and not in the circumstances” – Dale and Ginger Robbins.
