 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I retired, just as I turned 61, no regrets. 
The Navy gave me gypsy feet, and I've enjoyed them all my life.
As a result, traveling was not just a bucket list item for me. 

I'm a direct descendant, tenth generation, of Joseph Loomis.
The Loomis Family arrived in the New World on 17 July, 1638. 
We have defended America ever since. 
Other Comments:

"Service included boots-on-the-ground in Viet-Nam"
[ One year, 365 days, 24/7 -- 7 June 1970 to 7 June 1971 ]

U.S. Naval Advisory Group, Vietnamese Naval Shipyard, Saigon RVN
I'm also a Plank Owner and Shellback, USS Harlan County (LST-1196)
During my 4 years of active duty 3 years were credited as foreign or sea service.

I am glad, proud, to have been born an American.
I voluntarily joined the armed forces, and for that
matter I volunteered for duty in Vietnam. 

What I had hoped for was to not bring the violence,
the lack of value of a human life that I experienced
in Vietnam, back to America.  It is that simple.

I consider myself a POST-WAR PACIFIST.
