Robin Conrad, serving as a VA real estate agent in Vancouver, WA, and greater  Clark County since 1992, has left us for the next 18 months, going to aid the war effort in Iraq. He originally joined the 104th and was activated. He needed only a few more years to get his retirement.  Robin was not upset about being activated; he looked at it as an opportunity to serve his country. From my standpoint, it is a noble cause and I congratulate him for that commitment. I will continue to follow Robin’s time over in Iraq in following blogs on Vancouver VA Loan Specialist.
