It was a very happy, proud, and emotional day here at Embrey Mill on Monday, November 14, 2016. The Goodrich family, Army Sgt. Timothy Goodrich, his wife Jacqueline, daughter Lucy, 8, son Tag, 4, and service dog Maci, were welcomed by a large crowd of Embrey Mill residents, Stafford County officials, and representatives of both Newland Communities and all of the builders at Embrey Mill.
When most people attend a basketball game, they can expect long lines to get in, loud music, overpriced junk food, and the feeling of tension every time someone has to take a free throw. However, during the Washington Wizards game that took place on Veteran’s Day, retired U.S. Army Sgt. Timothy (Michael) Goodrich and his family got a huge surprise during halftime that they did not see coming.
