Kenneth's Story

Life Moved to Germany in 1992, middle and hs in DoD schools and got a German Degree in Information Technology while working for the DoD. I moved to Florida in 2003 after 7 years of DoD service. I currently work for a local IT company near Orlando (IT manager). My met my wife Trista in Dec 2006 and were married May 9th, 2009, she has several endearing qualities that I greatly admire. I love my small community as it reminds me of Beckley, WV. I love the outdoors and have fun at Disney every chance I get. I even have a part-time/seasonal job working there to relax. Current projects are working on my house, playing with our dog Tory and exploring the country with road trips. I've met a lot of people in my life and everyone has made an impact that I wouldn't trade. No regrets, enjoy life and defend your freedom. School I studied my last couple years of high school and all of University in the German system and graduated with a degree in Information Technology. I believe that it is one of the best systems, even if it seems 1800¿s. The German system is much different than the US, and for the better I think. German schools are very structured and focused on teaching and the students on learning, without the teachers babying them (lecture hall format). You have a total of two months off the whole year for most all grades and college. There is no time for parties or trouble making and students have to know what career they are going after, at age 12. From that point on all their education is geared toward that field of study. German High school students (13 grades) graduate at an Associates Degre...Expand for more
e in the US. The German Diplom is eqv. to a Bachelors or specialized masters degree in the US. Workplace Worked for the DoD for 7 years doing network communications and various tasks. Currently work at a local IT company near Orlando, as an IT Manager, running web and email servers for large companies in our datacenter. Most of my day is spent in an office or out in the field trouble-shooting network issues at other locations. I love my job and can do most of the work from home if I wanted, only downside is being on call when things erupt and coming to work to fix something. In college I did several jobs, from flipping burgers, handing out chicken, making pizza, selling cell phones, to running fiberoptic cable across DoD bases. I've learned that in life there is a lot of work to achieve what you want. My simple goal is happiness, to be happy and enjoy the work that life requires. Military Started working for the DoD in Aug 1996, I enrolled in a German University just a few months later using the DoD as my required apprenticeship. I worked and lived at several bases around Germany: Kaiserslautern (92-93), Worms, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Ramstein, Landstuel, Kaiserslautern (03) Operation Enduring Freedom was my largest ordeal as was 9/11. Resigned: 24 May 2003, GS-9 Future I love computers & dogs and have been working with both of them all my life, in 2010 I started Service Dogs of Florida, a 501c3 to train hearing and other service dogs. I plan to use it sort of as a working retirement, where it's less stressful and I can contribute to the local disabled community. (My wife is deaf.)
