 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

I was asked by my wife one day "What was I going to do today?" I said nothing.
Then she said, "But that is what you did yesterday". 
And I said "I'm not finished yet"

I just got out of Intensive Care

Other Comments:
FYI: To those whom I have added to my shipmates list, let it be known that I add those who have or are serving where I have served, or same rating, or from Texas. To me "together we served" says it all, be it past present or future. We all have a job to do. I and my shipmates have done our parts.


Within my Fallen Shipmates you will find  some very find hero's that gave their all,  I was very privileged to serve along side them.
