I was a Regular Army officer on active duty for 5 1/2 years after graduating from college in 1983. I was based mainly in Germany (the 81st and 19th Maintenance Companies of the 8th Maintenance Battalion, V Corps, based in Hanau and later, with 3rd Support Command headquarters in Wiesbaden) and at Fort Lewis, WA (709th Support Battalion (Main), 9th ID), serving as a platoon leader and company commander, battalion staff officer and a general's aide-de-camp. I emained in the Army Reserve until 1994. My experiences in the military were, in all respects, "good training," and the opportunity to live and travel across Europe during my three years in Germnay was a fantastic experience for anyone, especially for a country boy from middle Tennessee.

In early 2003, I became the in-house lawyer for a medical imaging company that originated the PET and PET/CT technologies, and then was promoted to serve as its General Counsel less than eight months later.

I used the unexpected "free time" and proceeds of th tender offer to take flying lessons and travel both in the U.S. and through Scotland. Along the way, my wife and I had a daughter, and I published a book, as well as having written numerous articles. I'm now a corporate contracts lawyer with the Tennessee Valley Authority. Life is good on the whole, but like most of us, I've seen stresses and sadness too: I lost my father in 1997, and almost all of my older relatives are now gone, as well as losing several friends to natural or other causes along the way. Still, I cherish my family and friendships, good colleagues, good laughs, and the opportunity to travel, write, teach and learn.
