Navy Unit Commendation

Meritorious Unit Commendation
My spouse, LNC Rebecca Landick, USN (Ret), and I are completely retired in Virginia Beach, VA, and ride our Harley trikes whenever we can, particularly on long distance runs.  We are both members of the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR), District 5, Hampton Roads; and, I am a prior Chapter Commander for the Southern Virginia chapter of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (Virginia 27-1).  Additionally, we are members of and ride with the Mustangs Motorcycle Club and Tidewater Virginia HOG (Harley Owners Group) Chapter.   We usually trailer our Cocker Spaniel in her mobile home behind my wife's bike.  We are, indeed, enjoying life to the fullest, riding in all directions, depending on the weather!!


Other Comments:

My best friend and spouse, Becca, is a retired LNC, retired Civil Servant and prior LEO.  She is also the  State Captain for the Commonwealth of Virginia's Patriot Guard Riders, and she's a Ride Captain for the Patriot Guard Riders, District 5, Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Following USN retirement, I worked for Ford Motor Co for 10 years establishing Business Development Center models in Ford/Lincoln-Mercury dealerships in the Hampton Roads
area.  Retired fully in 2005 and couldn't be happier in that decision!!!!
