Other Comments:
I listed the corporations I supported in hopes that someone I served with may be employed there. Also, I am a "Road Warrior" and spend most of my weekday nights in a hotel room somewhere in the USA. It would be easier to contact me via my email or cell phone.

Also,the photos shown in the 'Photo Album' at the lower-left of this website shows me at the controls of a B17-G Flying Fortress. It is my favorite Heavy Bomber of WWII. The aircarft is known as "The Aluminum Overcast" and is owned by the Experimental Aircraft & Aviation Association. I had the opportunity to actually fly this B17-G Flying Fortress for 15 minutes on April 22, 1995 (I got it on video too).
