 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After retiring from the Navy, I went to work for McDonnell Douglas Corporation as an instructor for the Harpoon and Tomahawk Weapons Control Systems.  I also completed my college undergraduate work during this time and then obtained a masters degree from Webster University.  From 1989 to 1996 I was the Tomahawk Cruise Missile Weapons Control System Logistics Program Manager at McDonnel Douglas.
After 17 plus years with the company I retired as the Missile Systems Division Training Manager.  I then taught business and production/operations courses at the university level for seven years at Sanford Brown College and Park University.

I am now fully retired and play as much golf as I can.
