Recent Activity  -


Brooklyn born and raised, college, drafted E-1, OCS at 27, Army/NG/Reserves. Promoted to 0-6 18 Oct.92, retired 28 Oct., nowhere to go. Col. In name only, no slots, retired top of LTC pay grade for retirement. CG couldn't keep me in the unit as over strength. Damn! The 70's on were hell, every time I was up for promotion, ranks were frozen or they raised the bar. Dual qualified 25A and 67H, in the end I was branch immaterial. Spent 4-5 yrs. teaching the USAR C&GS course at Wesley College in Dover Delaware. I got retired just in time, before Clinton could sign it. Anything else is TMI.
