 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Back to work as a Paramedic Captain at Fort Benning, GA....trying to keep all these Army of One Soldiers healthy!!! (Like only a Navy Hospital Corpsman can!!) After serving 3 years on the USS INDEPENDENCE as an ABF,  I took a 4 year break from the military. I went into the Army in 1995 for 4 years as a 91B, Combat Medic. I got out of the Army in 1999. I joined back up with the Navy Reserve in 2001 and have been loving it since!!

Personal Memories

Best Friends
Steve Foley...went through it all together. Boot camp, airman apprentice training, then got stationed on the same ship and division. Had some great times!!

Best Moment
GRADUATION!! What could be better than that??


Worst Moment
Had a hell of a time with the swim qual due to having to tread water forever waiting for people that couldnt swim to enter the pool!! I was so tired when I was done, I almost couldnt get out of the pool.
