Welcome
"It is the set of the sails not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go." ~ E. James Rohn

I have found that living life is very much like navigating with a map and compass; you must have a plan, plot a direction, set intermediate objectives, keep track of where you are, take it one step at a time, and stay on course.  When faced with obstacles, you have to push through or go around.  Backtracking is never a good idea.

Welcome to my site.

I was a soldier for over forty years.  Having little time for myself, I focused on the mission, my soldiers, and little else.

Now that I am retired, I am setting a course correction for my life, centered on my family and those things that interest me.  Most of this is probably of little interest to you, therefore, much of what you find on this site will be just that, uninteresting.

I keep this site posted as a hobby, a brain exercise, a personal history project, and the ease with which old friends have been able to find me.  This is also a place for me to post my photos (The Girl surely won't let me display them in her house).

If you wish to hang around, you are most welcome here.  To my friends, family, buddies, mates, students, and Cadets . . . drop me a line.  My contact info is listed at the "Send" tab.  New People are good too.   I will always answer back.

Airborne, H-Minus, Utrinique Paratus, War damn Eagle, Rah Virginia Mil!
