Alan has been in local and federal law enforcement for the last twenty years. He also served in the United States Navy from 1991 to 2004. Through his experiences, Alan has seen the effects that the adversary can have on families and how he intends to destroy the family unit. These experiences have also assisted Alan in protecting his family physically and spiritually. Homeschooling is fairly new to Alan and his wife Paulette, but he has found that this is an excellent way to raise righteous, intelligent and service-driven families, who enjoy the freedoms this country has to offer because of the sacrifice of others.
Alan was raised and educated in Collinsville, Oklahoma. He received his BA in Criminology from St. Leo University and continued his education by earning his MS in Criminal Justice from the University of Oklahoma. Alan and Paulette, his wife of twenty-five years, have five children. Three of their children are married and two of them are at home with one preparing for his mission and one who has one more year of homeschooling before graduating. The Westermans currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska.
