Christy Smith - SCV Signal
I was born in Wurzburg, Germany. My birth certificate(s) are a mish mash of documents in German and English and include a “souvenir” birth certificate courtesy of the U.S. Army, along with a hand-written receipt for the $7.50 my parents paid to take me home from the U.S. Army hospital where I was born. Born of two U.S. citizens, my father an enlisted man at the time, there’s never been a doubt that I am an American. In the fall of 1969, my parents headed back state-side; 6 month old me in tow.
