About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Retired
Location Bethany Beach, Delaware
Introduction I was a Navigator in the 39th ATS, DAFB, 1962-1965,with about 2000 C-133 hours. Leaving active duty in Aug '65 I went directly to the University of Maryland and in 1969 earned a Ph.D. Sue, the kids, and I then went to Heidelberg, Germany for a year with the University of Md as Comptroller, European Division. In 1970 we relocated to Swarthmore, PA until I retired in 1992 to our Summer home in Bethany Beach. While in Swarthmore I was a Vice-President at a couple of local Colleges and after tiring of that, I had a small Mergers and Acquisition company and dabbled in Commercial Real Estate sales and development. I did teach Economics, Finance, and Statistics serving as an adjunct Associate Professor in an MBA program in Delaware after retirement. I began my career teaching and ended it teaching and it was always a most enjoyable endeavor. I did retain my military connections by joining the MDANG, 135th Air Commando Squadron operating out of Martin Field while in graduate school. Then I took an Individual Readiness slot in the Auditor General's Office and Comptroller General's Office with additional duties as an USAF Academy Liaison Officer retiring as an O5 in 1988.
