Bio 

Grew up on a farm with 16 brothers and sisters - 3rd oldest. After getting out of the service I married a very nice lady whom I had met just before going in. After some time she started writing to me in Vietnam and we got to know each other very well. After graduating from college, which fulfilled a promise I made to myself while in Vietnam. After 5 years with Radio Shack ++ I spent more than 20 years in education, then retired because I could.

As an Image Interpreter/analyst my job was to track enemy movement and find targets. I liked my job and worked hard at it knowing that it would save some of our guys lives. My hard work was recognized with a bronze star.
