 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I retired from being a volunteer at the Anderson, SC Police Department. I worked at the Support Services Divisions and am involved in helping with getting the Department ready for being accredited with the State of South Carolina. I also do data entry of training data. I am going to stepdown from this position on April 24th my 7th anniversary of doing the volunteer work. It is time to hang it up. My disability with the VA has been raised to 80% and is now being processed to go to 100% unemployable.

I am active in the Knights of Columbus. I am a member of Council 8295, and the Faithful Navigator for Assembly 311 in Anderson, SC. I have been selected by the State Deputy to be the Regional Disaster Coordinator for the 2nd Responder Program in South Carolina. I am also the Web Master for the Coucil 8295/Assembly 3411 web sight.

I am the Chaplain for The American Legion, Post 14, Anderson, SC and a life member. I am also life member of Vietnam Veterans of America, VFW, Disabled American Veterans,  and a member of Fleet Reserve Association.
I was rated 100% disabled by VA effective 8/16/2018.
