Cliff White, a food service specialist with Company J, 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), did just that the afternoon of January 22nd at his home on Fort Campbell.

Make New Friends

 

Consider a variety of avenues to create a fresh social network, no matter your age

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As we age, we realize more and more that our true treasure is not in the bank or our retirement accounts. It’s in our lives, families and friendships.

In fact, close relationships are vital to our physical, mental and emotional health – contributing to our quality of life, self-esteem and even longevity. Studies show that a lack of social connection can be as damaging as smoking, drinking too much, or even leading a sedentary lifestyle. So, when the professional or social interactions shift and evolve, it becomes increasingly important to build and maintain your network.
