About Vance Barrett Mathis
Carol and I have been married 56 years, having married in August 1958. We have lived in many places where I have been in ministry, either as a pastor or as a district superintendent in The United Methodist Church. Several years were spent on active duty as a U.S. Army Chaplain. I served in the First Infantry Division (Big Red One) in Vietnam and am retired as chaplain, lieutenant colonel. We live near Warner Robins AFB and enjoy the benefits of military retirees. We live in a lovely neighborhoood, and very near two of our daughters and their families, and just 51 miles from our oldest daughter and her family. Carol and I are well and enjoy being together. We have been privileged to travel to all of the United States, have been abroad, and been on numerous Caribbean cruises and recently on an Alaskan cruise..
