With over 32 years of serving her country, Vida’s career included serving in the Regional Security Offices in numerous countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. Lucky found Vida during her tour in Conakry, Guinea. Vida was new at post, and Lucky helped Vida adjust to her new life. Lucky was Vida’s friend and companion through changing and difficult times.
