GAINESVILLE, GA—Debra Cooper, a veteran of the U.S. Army, was about to receive a diploma for a Masters of Occupational Therapy when she was greeted by her daughter, Staff Sgt. Markita James, who had flown in from active duty in Afghanistan just for her mom's graduation. We're so thankful that God blesses us with people who love like this!
