Jason and Lisa are both prior active duty Navy. From 2009-2012, they lived in Misawa Air Force Base, Misawa, Japan. As it was the first time they lived together since being married, they wanted a dog. The base had a kennel and upon the very first visit, they fell in love with Rocket. They visited him every day (we lived 2 blocks away) and eventually were able to foster him. One day, they got a phone call that Rocket was finally able to be adopted. They IMMEDIATELY filed the paperwork and Rocket finally was totally a member of their household. They brought him back to Maryland from Japan, where they lived for 9 years, then to GA where Rocket Machine Worx is located today. Rocket now has two siblings, Booster and Sherman.
