 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am married, my wonderful wife Suprena is a middle school teacher. Now that is real courage 2 boys 1 18 y/o, 1 15 y/o,(both pretty much long-haired hippies (although they don't call themselves that now) just like I was before the Navy straightened me out. I have worked as an industrial electrician for Chanute Mfg Co, one of the largest heat exchanger/ boiler manufacturers in the US (Yes we do still manufacture things in the US) for the last 20 years. After active duty I spent 6 years in the Kansas Army National Guard as a cook. Then I spent 8 years in the Navy Reserve as a Construction Electrician 1st class after which I retired from the military, went to Emergency Medical Technician School and now work part time as an EMT for the local ambulance service.. I am a PADI certified SCUBA diver and run a rescue and recovery diving business with a friend. We offer our services to local fire and law enforcement for free and have recovered drowning victims from some of the area lakes. So far we have not been asked to recover anything else for the authorities. I manage to stay busy.
