Recent Activity  -


I am married for 20 years, the longest ever. I retired 31 Jul 1992 from the US Army at the grade E-7/SFC. I served 8 years as a 63H, then reclassed to 79D which later became 00R. I'm a non-combat veteran, originally from Washington State and currently living in the greatest place in North America, in my opinion, Plains, MT. I love golf, bowling, photography and being outdoors & art. Student at the University of Montana.
