Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Here in Texas, we take honoring our military very seriously. No matter what branch, gender, age, or position served, those who fight for our country are held in the absolute highest regard. So what better way to show our support than paying a visit to one of the second World War’s most important army bases? Fort Wolters, near Mineral Wells, may be nothing more than decrepit buildings today, but its history cannot be forgotten.
