12 May 1962 - 12 Nov 1993


For almost eight years I served this country in the US Navy.  I was proud to serve but ran into many that thought I should be ashamed because we were wrong to be in Vietnam.  The lack of support by our Nation was the most discouraging element of my time of service.  May we as a Nation, never do that to our Men and Women in the Military, ever again!

Memorial Day

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day,
is a day to remember those who have died
in our nation's service.
In 1971, it was declared a national holiday
to be held on the last Monday in May.

(There is more down Below)


No Nation, nor it's Military is perfect, but our Great Nation and this our Modern Military is as Good as it gets!  No, other Nation, No other Military could have done what our Military Personnel did since Sept. 11th 2001. I know that our success did not depend entirely on our Military but God. He and He alone Blessed this Nation with the Good Men/Women, the Brave Men/Women who served and continue to serve our Country because they believe that God has sent them to serve in Battle so that is where they serve. So this page is for them. The Men and Women that stand in harms way, because it is simply their job, and they will do it to the best of their God given ability.

I salute you.

Thank You ALL
