Other Comments:

Active Duty P-3C IFT from 1982 to 1992. (VP-30, VP-24, NAMTGD Jax Det 1011, VP-5)
Got out and started my own business which I had until 2003.
After 9/11, I felt compelled to serve again, joined the Reserves and got an IFT billet in VP-62. Went IRR in 11/2004. I was a project manager for a civilian company from 2004 to 2006. Did short stint at FRC/SE working on P-3's, F-18's and EA-6B's.  Avionics Lead for Missionization on the Lockheed Martin VH-71 Presidential Helicopter Support Program 11/2008 until program cancelled in 6/2009.
Currently the NAVAIR PMA-290 P-3C Mission Systems Trainer. I love this job, because I'm back in the P-3 Fleet, on an aircraft I know so well, teaching our young war-fighters how to use their new mission systems, avionics, acoustics, and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) equipment. I serve on the following Integrated Product Teams (IPT): Critical Obsolescence Program (COP), Mission Systems Program, C4 for ASW Program, and USQ-78B Acoustic Program.
