With a variety of interests in Lorene Fowler’s life, there’s one central chord that drove it all: music.
Fowler retired from the U.S. Army in 2003. In her final posting at Fort Knox, she was a first sergeant in the 113th Army Band, the Dragoons. She played saxophone and traveled all over the world, spending some time in Germany and a tour in Korea.
