What are you doing now:
Working from my home in Promotional Sales.  Trying to remember my life from birth to now and getting a family history made up ASAP.  Working with Tea Party to elicit a change in the direction our country is taking.  I am actually more concerned with direction our country is taking at the present time 2008 to present.   Hope to see some changes in the next election towards getting back to what our founding fathers evisioned.  I do not want all who have served this great nation living or dead and from all military services to have spent so many years protecting our freedoms to see them taken away by unconsitutional politicans not adhereing to our founding principles.  I love America and would serve again if possible.  I am 80% disabled from Agent Orange in Vietnam,  but still able to get around so I am truly blessed.  Twice blessed for my wife who is still with me and all of our family members scattered all over America.  God Bless America.
