 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Enjoying being retired, watching my kids grow up. I do miss the Navy with a passion. I probably miss the CVW5 in Japan the most. Don't think I ever worked that hard in my life. And if they would let me go back in time and do it over, I wouldn't change a thing. I work an eight hour day now, live 15 minutes from work, and I seem to have less time on my hands than when I was active duty working 11-12 hours a night. To all my brothers in Japan, still there strokin' it, thank you. I think about you guys all the time, wish I could be there with you. My wife doesn't have anybody to make dinner for anymore.
