GREENFIELD — While Cupid’s conscience is gently prodding many couples to make those dinner reservations and not to forget the cards, candy and flowers this Valentine’s Day, Katie North’s plans for her sweetheart are a bit more arduous.
To meet her husband for a romantic dinner, North, an Air Force staff sergeant, boarded a plane Thursday afternoon in San Antonio, Texas, to make a 14-hour, 5,300-mile flight to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. Her husband, Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven North, is stationed just down the road at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. The couple will spend seven days together.
North, a 2005 graduate of Greenfield-Central High School who enlisted in 2007, is currently stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, where she serves as a radiology instructor.
She met Steven in the Air Force, and the two were married in 2009.
