 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After the Navy, I thought I would like to work a few more years with the Goverment, so I become a civial service emplyee. I started my secoud career working for the Army as a 1060 still photographer, this went up to 1991, then I found myself working for the Navy again which was great, I was doing many of the things I did while on active duty.Then in 1996 I started work for the Coast Guard.All of this was in my field photography, I compleated my tweenty Years as a 1060 grade ten and retired a 2nd time in 2006.
 I now have a photography office and I still can not wait to get to work every morning.

Personal Memories

Best Friends
I do not remember his name now, but I was very sick and look like it, so I ask him to go to sick bay for me and complain that he had a bad cold, they gave him pills whic he gave me.I didn,t want to go myself, as I do not want to be put in holding co.It help me get through.

Best Moment
When my CO Comander relize I would not give up no matter how hard he made my life.I relize he found some other guy to kick instead of me.


Worst Moment
Swim Teast when it was discovered that I could not swim on my back.The instructor would not let me out of the pool, and I sank to the bottom.

Other Memories
On Boot Leave I arrived at the airport and my father walk right by me, I new then I must look a mess. 88LBS and 24inch waist.
