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!

What an amazing woman. You made a difference in the lives of so many, I know that you to, will never be forgotten, NEVER!
That was always my Dad’s favorite Hymn. He was Retired Military as well. Thank you for your service Jim and Sherry.
