 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Love my job driving these big old buses down the road.  Have traveled on the East Coast from Montreal, Canada to Orlando, FL and anywhere in between.  Live in Memphis now and Travel; the Midwest from Chicago, IL to New Orleans, LA and anywhere in between.  Was involved with relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina, have driven for the NBA All Star Games.  Never a dull day everyday is new.  Only thing I don't like is being on call 24/7.  I meet some very interesting people on my bus some I love and some I hope not to meet again LOL.  As I look at some of my shipmates I am very impressed on the successes some of the young sailors I worked with have acheived so much.  I've been retired ten yrs in Nov and I still miss active duty! Too fat and out of shape now though LOL.

My son Roger JR. served 7.5yrs in Air Force got out and moved back home with me last year is attending University of Memphis for next four years.
