Once upon a time, America felt pretty good about stories like Craig and Kathryn Halls.
Here are people who have worked hard their whole lives, made good investments and have given back to their communities and their country.

His wife had more of a step-up in life, perhaps, but she built on her beginnings, becoming a successful lawyer, executive and ambassador.
