Vince entered the Army Reserves at a young age, and served for thirty-eight years, including 2 deployments to Iraq. Part of his goal in joining Operation Delta Dog was to seek more adventure and community involvement. 
Enter Tippy! Coming from Animals for Adoption out of Arkansas, Tippy has proven to be a diplomat, adventurer and constant companion. She now relaxes at home with Vince and his cat, in between excursions to the museum and local restaurants.
