Bio 

Initially it seemed like two distinct tracks: combat engineering and facilities management, but I soon realized that much of the obstacle and barrier world of combat engineering applied to physical security on the facilities side and a lot of the material management on the facilities side applied to success on the combat side. I was fortunate to turn that into a satisfying second career. '78-'81 completed all course work for a Ph.D. in Management Science at UCLA. However, their demands for dissertation progress proved incompatible with being a student at Marine Corps Command & Staff College and single-parenting three children ages 11, 9, and 2
