Brightseasons in Action

Davie Land has always worked at least part time to help out his single mother and younger brother. The past five years’ job has been at Starbucks where he enjoys meeting people from all around the world. “If you woke up today, you’re winning,” is his philosophy.

He didn’t have much choice since repairs weren’t possible until he received his next paycheck.

Dedication to our Servicemen

The year was 1943 when 17-year old James Robert Peebles convinced his widowed mother to sign permission for her oldest son to enter the United States Marine Corps. He would leave his $5 a week job as a pin boy at the bowling alley taking away the sole income of his mother and three siblings until his military payments would reach home. After boot camp in North Carolina, the New Castle, Pennsylvania enlistee would make his way to San Diego where he would ship out on the General Ernst. They would cross the International Dateline on Christmas, his 18th birthday, skipping a day for the exchange.
