 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I retired from the Navy in 1999, soon after I was living my dream of teaching and coaching at my High School. I went from a teacher/football coach in 99 to Principal in 2005. Along the way I was a Navy JROTC Instructor for 3 years.

I am now employed by the U.S. Government as an IT Consultant.
