 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Currently enjoying myself to the max.  I retired from the Defense industry (CTA - EER Systems and VSS) in 2001 and haven't looked back.  I travel extensively in my motorhome, pulling a Jeep 8 or 9 months of the year.  Life is good.  Give me a shout by dropping a message or email.  I'd be glad to hear from old friends and shipmates.
