Joe and Debbie Gladden are the founder / owners of Veteran Realty Serving America's Military, Inc., VR SAM.  As Realtors serving the Northern Virginia region, they have worked with many Military Families, Federal Employees, Defense Contractors, and the General Public in purchasing and selling homes for over 13 years.  This forum is intended to assist Military Families with the highly complex process of buying and selling homes.   They fully recognize the unique challenges of the military lifestyle with the numerous relocations incident to a military career.   We sincerely appreciate your service to our country!  

Joe and Debbie loved the military life, culture, and most importantly, the people. They cherish the lifetime friends they made in their 25 years of Naval service, and those they continue to make in “retirement.”

Debbie is a Missouri native, and a true expert in the military family “experience.” She has “logged” eleven different geographic locations from Boston, MA, to Southern California, and 21 different houses, ranging from a rented mobile home to a pop up camper, base housing, numerous rentals, and the purchase of six different homes. Along the way, she managed a household of three active children, participated in a host of Navy spouse/family events, and managed a highly successful secretarial career culminating in senior executive secretary at George Mason University. As with most military spouses, she had to contend with the numerous and lengthy deployments inherent in military service.

Joe is also a Missouri native and alumni of University of Missouri with a business degree, class of 1974. He received his commission from Navy ROTC and entered flight training, earning his wings in 1976. He was initially assigned to a P-3 squadron, VP-8 in Brunswick, Maine. Subsequent tours included: Corpus Christi as aT-44 instructor; department head tours in P-3 squadrons at Memphis and Glenview; Reserve P-3 Wing staff, Moffett Field; Officer-in Charge of a Reserve Patrol Squadron at Point Mugu; resident course at the Naval War College, Newport, RI; Commanding Officer of a Reserve Patrol Squadron at South Weymouth, MA; Executive Officer of NAS South Weymouth, MA; Program Manager on the Director of Naval Reserve staff, Pentagon; and a final tour as the Commander, Reserve Patrol Wing, Norfolk.

Joe and Debbie have been married for...well, a long time...and are blessed with three grown children who they proudly consider their best friends, one granddaughter who they spoil at every opportunity.
