Bio 

Kind of still attached to the Army. My wife is a Supervising Professor in the European, Latin American Languages Department at DLI, Presidio of Monterey. After 30 years away from Fort Ord, I am back...only the once vibrant military installation is one disgrace. The one good thing, is a huge VA clinic is being built right on my old Bn & Bde headquarters area.
