 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
After I retired from the Navy I was hired by the City of Stanton, CA as a Police Officer.  I attended the Police Academy 1985 at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, CA.  After a year at Stanton my family wanted to move back down to San Diego so I was hired by the City of Coronado, CA a small beach community in San Diego County as a Police Officer.  In August 1989 while riding a ATV on the North Beach I had an accident on the ATV and injured my right knee.  After recurring injuries of the knee the City of Coronado finally concurred that my injury was an ON DUTY injury and authorized me to be officially retired, medically.  I've had two surgeries on the right knee, one in 1993 and the second in 1995 .  In 1987 I moved back to Colorado Springs, CO and since I've been back here I've had numerous health issues, three hip replacements, two back surgies, 3 heart attacks and four stents in my heart.  I know have a morphine pump inside my tummy to help me cope with my constant pain.  I am a Ham Radio Operator, my call sign is N0mud, I enjoy camping in my Travel Trailer, and fishing and hunting when my health permits.  My wife and I belong to the Good Sams Org. and also belong to the Hammin' Sams Chapter within the Good Sams Org.  During the summer we camp together once a month and during the winter months we all meet at different locations for a lunch/meeting.
