      Hi Michelle;  Well, congrats on being a Grandma!  I travel to Woodbridge about once a week for appts. What a small world!  Is Maco the Slovak name of your Dad?

      I am ½ Slovak from my dad’s side and my daughter, who lives near you, is ¼ Slovak. She just had a baby last week so there’s a new Slovak in your area ☺ She lives near Woodbridge but will be moving to Fredericksburg in a couple of months.

      Hi Bill; That is amazing, so cool! To meet other Slovaks at that event and one that is stationed nearby, (at least for me as I live in VA)!
      I am new to this group and am eager to learn more and perhaps meet others of Slovak heritage. I attended St. Cyril Academy in Danville, PA for high school as did my Mother and Aunts. It is run by the Sisters of Ss. Cyril and Methodius; most of whom are of Slovak heritage. We are Slovak on my Mom's side but unfortunately she passed when I was young so I don't have much information on my personal heritage. Her maiden name was Eva Marie Drozdek so if you or anyone has any ideas/info I'd greatly appreciate it.
      btw, I'm in the DC area; where are you located?
      thanks so much;

      I attended the Special Operations Forces International Conference in Tampa this past week as I have for the past several years. This year they had Special Forces people from 90 countries attending. I wondered if there were any from the Slovak Republic. At the gala dinner on Wednesday night, 3 men in uniform approached our table to ask if the empty seats were available. All 3 were from Slovakia! Two were Slovak Army Lieutenant Colonels (1 on the General Staff in Bratislava and the other the Chief of Staff of the 5th Special Forces Group). The third was a Slovak Air Force Colonel currently stationed at a NATO command in Norfolk, VA. Needless to say I had a great evening! What a small world.
