Full Name:
United States
USMC & USN - Retired

Served 30 years in the United States Armed Forces. Last 24 at Naval Special Warfare Development Group. Concentrated and grouped into, Joint Psychological Operations Task Force (JPOTF).

Retired Chief Warrant Officer 3 - Ordnance Technician (surface). I am now RETIRED (30SEP08) from all official duties! HOOYAH! I do continue to serve as my American Legion Post's; Veterans Service Officer/Veterans Benefits Officer. (VSO/VBO)

It is extremely rewarding to be of service to my Brothers & Sisters-In-Arms. Even so; my heart bleeds so profusely for these Noble Souls that are now home and changed forever. Often times I must step away from this, the most rewarding and gratifying of all DUTIES I've ever volunteered to carry out; and "come home" again." (It can be very emotional at times and it never seems to me that I have done enough.) If you are a Combat Veteran, you know exactly what I mean.

Rest assured however; that the Gunner will be back on watch after every short step away. On point, so that I can do all within my power to help returning Veteran Warriors, "Come Home Again" HOOYAH!

Since 9/11/2001, The Naval Special Warfare Community has lost many men within this small Brotherhood. The Naval Special Warfare Family mourns the loss of each. I ask all to take a moment of silent reverence and in your own way, pay homage to not just these fallen WARRIORS; but for all that have walked downrange, all that have worn our Nation's Cloth. For all that continue to wrap themselves in our Colors and face what the majority will never know or even understand.
