“Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister”

Bonnie Pettis is the daughter of a Navy Vietnam Veteran, a Marine Veteran sister, wife (of 22 years), mother and mother-in-law. She served the family home-front with an infant and a toddler for 2 of the 3
career combat tours her husband experience and remained state side during his one year duty station in Okinawa.
After been separated from military life for 6 years, Bonnie was drawn to the activities The Highground provides to Veterans (including her husband). She left her Occupational Therapy Assistant career of 21 years to joined The Highground in 2020 as the Event Coordinator and assists the Veteran Programming Coordinator with the Veteran Retreats. She is humbled by the passion the staff, volunteers and Veterans possess. Being around those who have served, are serving and will serve makes her feel at home.
