Other Comments:
Working towards becoming a retired gentleman farmer;  retired on 01 Jun 2010 from Lane Construction Co. and intend to travel the country while my wife works and maintains our home in Virginia.  I would like to see my old shipmates from Forrestal, Kitty Hawk, FighterTown USA (Miramar), Heavy Recon (Sanford/Albany) and some of the recruits from NTC/RTC San Diego days.
