"Happy is the man, who, like Ulysses, has made a fine voyage, or has won the Golden Fleece, and then returns, experienced and knowledgeable, to spend the rest of his life among his family!" ~ Joachim du Bellay

Welcome to my new web site.

I have recently taken off the uniform of our nation after two very long careers in the regular Army and at a small college in Virginia.  Since I was twenty-two years old, the uniform is all I have ever known.  I've always said that a man needs to do some gee-whiz things during  his life in which he can be justifiably proud.  I'll hang my hat on my time as a Paratrooper.

I'm ready to see what "Civvie Street" has to hold.

Now it is time to do different things..."normal" things.  I don't want to be that guy who has to take a job after retirement because he is "bored."  Now I will have the time to invest in all of the things in which I am interested.  Now, I have time for family things.


So, this site is about my new next life, a new direction, a course adjustment.  If you're so inclined, hang around and join me on this journey.

For all my friends, family, former cadets, and troopers: Stay in touch.  New people are good too.  My contact information is listed at the last tab.

John
