 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am retired 100%

I worked as a contractor with numerous Companies to support NAVSSES, Philadelphia between my retirement from the Navy in 1985 until April of 2010 when I retired fully. I did work at the Naval Shipbuilding Support Office at Philadelphia for a period of 5 years during the above period above as well.

I am presently honing my expertise as a grand father of four. I am reading as much as I possibly can.

I do volunteering and have made numerous short term missions trips with my church, where

I have also served as a Deacon, taught the mens Class and functioned as the Sunday School Superintendant
