Personal bio

65 yrs old as of this year 2011. Joined military as Seabee in US Navy in 1968. I've got socks older than most of you straight legs. Spent two tours in Viet Nam. Joined Mississippi National Guard as E4 in 1971. Retired in 1990 with 21 yrs of duty as Captain in Armour. Spent those years in an M-60 tank until promoted to Bn. Staff. Duty billets I've held are platoon leader, Company xo, Detachment Cmdr, Company Cmdr, Bn Como, Bn Recon, Bn S1, Bn S2, Bn S4 and retired on Regimental staff in S2 Dept. with the last Billet as Cmdr of Post Field Training. Too long-too tired--retired. Also retired from Bell South Telephone Co. Married-two sons that are mine and two daughters inherited from second wife.
