Recent Activity  -


Typical childhood I think. Abusive alcoholic father who often wasn't home. Learned five languages as a child and never volunteered that information to DOD until I caught the translator at McChord AFB translating wrong onboard an AN124 aircraft. There isn't enough space here to go much more.
