What are you doing now:
Enjoying life with my wife Tina, my step daughter Caressa, my grandkids, my new home here in Rockingham and NASCAR.  Knee deep in the American Legion and riding my Harley.  Working for WIC after taking a year off after retiring in December 2006. Loved my time in the Navy.  Went to Great Lakes for boot camp, on to NATTC Millington for AW A school then to VP-31.  Had a great time in VP-9, where I grew up and made 3rd and 2nd. back to the RAG.  Flew 2500 hours plus in the P-3 and moved on to the Viking world.  Went to VS-41 and on to be a Screwbird at VS-33.  Made 3 cruises and was VS-33 1986 SOY and picked up AWC.  Back to the RAG at VS-41 with a TAD to FCDSSA Point Loma.  Help bring the S-3B to the fleet and was selected to CWO.  Onto TSC Kadena, learned alot about Tactical paperwork.  Flew with VP-1 as an OUTLAW HUNTER GUY, Cool. Was the ASW Evaluator for HSL-51 TORP-EXs. Rode the Indy as the VPLO. Back to VS-41 to become a TACCO.  VS-29 was a great time and learned to be a TAO with the DESRON.  Made 2 cruises in VS-29, Kitty Hawk and Carl Vinson. A RAG guy again, front seat training on back to Japan with VS-21 and OIF. Those of you that remember Ms Donna, we lost her to cancer April 13th 2001.  She will always be in our hearts. Back to sea forward deployed, Two cruises in VS-21, Kitty Hawk love boat cruise and OIF, 120 days at sea there and back from Japan, stop nowhere and liked it. The RAG, VS-41 was my last tour.  My ships includes Kitty Hawk 5 cruises, Nimitz, Vinson, Ranger, Constellation, Lincoln and Indy.  660 traps and 2400 S-3 hours 300 in the front seat, not bad fo a P-3 guy........Those night traps will put hair on your chest.........
