US Navy Honorable Discharge




 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

I mustered out after 4 years with an Honorable Medical discharge after blowing out my knees. Over the years my knee and back issues have slowed me down and I have had to give up playing in Blues/Funk/Rock bands and riding/racing motorcycles and cars. Now days I just do a little shooting and go to the gun shows or kill brain cells on the Internet.

Me, Asia, the Chris Duarte Strat and Ryan Munsey

I'm on the left! Our friend Asia is in the middle with the autographed Chris Duarte Strat we raffled off and to the right is my bass player, Ryan Munsey.

The event is held annually at the Sundown Tavern in Ruston, LA to raise donations to the John Simoneaux Memorial Fund which is a fully endowed Music Scholarship that has been established in John's name at Louisiana Tech University.

I played drums for John for years there and in his band with Ryan. Here is a pic from way back then when we first started playing together as a band.
