Recent Activity  -


I had 34 yrs service in combat arms. Most of my experience was at the battalion level and some at higher headquarters. My experience was in armor and mechanized units and in a Maintenance Bn as an EM. I have a pretty extensive military and civilian education. My career was a typical full time NG officers career path. I have been retired for 15 years and miss it every day. Stay on the tank! I have been active in community service since retirement. I have served in the local volunteer fire department. I have been a Forest Fire Warden. I've coached youth hockey and served on the township recreation committee. I have been active in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. I've tried to give back, because this country has given me so much. I've studied terrorism and insurgency since the 70s and do terrorism analysis and defense analysis.
