Twelve days after turning 17, the summer of my Sophomore year I joined the Marine Corps, Spent the next three years stationed in Hawaii and San Diego. My last year plus the President Johnson extension saw me running around South VietNam. October 1966 I became a civilian living in Yuma, AZ were I worked for Circle K, then Safeway.

n Dec 1980 I earned my BS from NAU. On 1992 I retired as an officer with DPS, came back the next day as an Intel Analyst until 2000. On 2000 I went to work for US Customs as a Technical Enforcement Officer until I retired in June 2002. I had a wonderful career in law enforcement, mainly working Narcotics, Intelligence, and Tech. Since retiring I assist the HS and local swim clubs as an Admin Official. Life has been good to me, still married, have a son who is a local business owner and a grandson who is attending college hoping to make it into the medical field. My high school years were not the best as the parents were in the process of divorcing, Mom in Yuma, Dad in Tyler. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the time at school, the friends that I made, the times that we shared. Some helped me through the years in coping with the times and life. Thanks
