Freet is originally from California but is enjoying the people and scenery here in Harrison County, Iowa.

LOGAN -- Brittany Freet is back in the working world after being a stay-at home mom for four years because she’s found her “dream job.”

Freet started at the Veterans Affairs Office January 29 and took over officially as the administrator/director February 18. Freet replaces Mike Oehler.

“I am just familiarizing myself with the Office and the many materials available to me,” she said of the first few weeks. 

Ooh rah!

Freet grew up in the Orange County area in California but moved around a lot because her father was in the Marines.

She also lived in Nevada, Missouri and Minnesota, to name a few.

The family would land in Lemoore, Calif., which is a town of about 26,000 people and located roughly 30 miles south of Fresno. That is where Freet went to middle school and high school.

Soon after graduating high school in 2005, Freet started her military career as a Marine.

But, Freet is no stranger to the military. Not only is her father a retired Marine, she has several family members who have or are currently serving, too.

And she took two years of ROTC in high school.

Following her time at boot camp at Great Lakes in Chicago, Ill., Freet was assigned to her first post in Bangor, Wash.

Freet moved around several times. She completed her service time in 2013.
