Light Farms is proud of our residents who served in the military and would like to recognize them.  We begin with our resident beekeeper, Rod Boyd!

Rod has been a resident of Light Farms since 2014. He is currently an FAA Aviation Safety Inspector for a large locally based air carrier. Here’s what Rod had to say about his service:

What branch of service were you in?

RB: U.S. Coast Guard

When and where did you serve?

1968-1974-Hawaii; 1974-1976-Alaska; 1976-1983-Florida; 1983-1988-Texas.

What was a highlight of your service?

Literally being responsible for saving innumerable individuals lives; Vice-President’s Task Force On Drug Interdiction

What advice would you give current service men and women?

To quote a very famous individual “Stay the course”, a career in the military, especially the Coast Guard is extremely rewarding and life affirming.

Additional comments?

I was able to navigate my twenty-year career in the Coast Guard into a second twenty-seven-year career as a successful airline captain flying all over the world.  That career resulted in my current and third, seven-year career in aviation safety.

Thank you for your service, Rod!

Mr. Boyd will be at our Market this Sunday, 11/13 from 1PM – 4PM selling Light Farms Organic Honey!  Be sure to come by and say hello!
