Billy Longley – US Army Veteran

Billy Longley – US Army Veteran

I would like to start out by saying how way above and beyond Frontline Gardens and Eschalot went in making our garden special. I grew up in Powell TN just outside of Knoxville and moved to Arkansas in 2003 where I attended night school to obtain my general equivalency diploma. In 2004, I joined the Army and deployed three times. First 2007-08 to Iraq, next 2009-10 to Iraq a second time, finally 2010-11 to Afghanistan. After being discharged from the Army, I obtained my Commercial Driver’s License and spent several years driving a truck over the road. During that time, I was able to travel thru all 48 states and see first hand this beautiful country I fought for.  I am the proud father of three daughters, Destiny, Jasmine, Breanna and a bonus step-daughter Ruth. I met my best friend and love of my life Haley in 2016 and have been happily married ever since. In December 2018, my middle daughter Jasmine was killed and we named our garden in her memory. Thank you to everyone involved: Frontline Gardens, Eschalot, American Legion Post 99 in Sparta, TN and CVMA 18-7 and 18-3 as well as several other close friends who all made our day so special.
