The Woman Beside the Man

Someone once said: “behind every great man, you will find a great woman”.  Sometimes, the great woman is beside him.

I am not alone in thinking that Jim Womack is a great man, and I recently had the pleasure of meeting the great woman beside him.

Lt. Col. Sherry-Lynn Womack, United States Army (Retired) is a truly impressive woman.  She is a tiny little package of dynamite!  Like her husband Jim, her post-Army activities include public service.  She currently serves on the Lee County NC School Board.

I could sit here and write all evening about this remarkable woman, but the videos shown below might tell you more.

A TV news feature on Sherry-Lynn:

After writing this article, I discovered another gem among Sherry-Lynn’s YouTube videos.  Listen to beautiful voices singing Amazing Grace, and read her comment below explaining why she requested this hymn be sung at her retirement ceremony.

With combat tours in both Afghanistan and Iraq there is no doubt that I believe in God’s “Amazing Grace” so it should come as no surprise that this song would be requested as I wanted to remember my friends who were not able to attend and made the ultimate sacrifice to our Country. Brian, Justin, Jamie, Dan, Chuck and Mike I will NEVER forget you… NEVER!

Matt Overby Endorses Jim Womack

Raleigh Republican Club Chairman Matt Overby has endorsed Jim Womack for NCGOP State Chairman.  Below is Matt’s endorsement from his Facebook page.

I’m proud to endorse Jim Womack for Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party. Jim is the kind of committed Christian conservative that we need as NCGOP Chairman. He is a veteran, a former county commissioner in Lee County, and is the current Lee County GOP Chairman.



It’s time to have a Chairman that will bring the grassroots energy needed to keep newly acquired Trump supporters active in the party.

It’s time to have a Chairman who will be attentive to the needs of the county parties.

It’s time to #revivetheparty

In addition to chairing the Raleigh Republican Club, Matt Overby serves as an elected member of the  Wake County Soil & Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors.
