Other Comments:
Do to a major decline in my health resulting from my exposure to Agent Orange, we have decided to move our "Home Port" to Denton Texas. We needed to be closer to some of our kids. Two of our six kids live here and have been wonderful. Thank God for family. We are and always Texans. My Great-Great-Granduncle, William P. King died at the Alamo on March 6 1836. I come from a long line of Warriors. Both my parents served in WW-II, my Dad served in the 12th Armored Division, ETO, and my Mom was a Navy WAVES Aviator and flew the Pacific Ocean doing weather recon. I have many other family members who served this great country, ever since the Revolutionary War.
