About me

Location Florida, United States
Introduction I'm supposed to say something here. It's all on my first post, but here goes: Retired Army sergeant (including Active Guard/Reserve), infantry mostly; some military intelligence, armored cavalry and flight operations. 11th Armored Cavalry in Vietnam. Married to Priscilla on Aug. 2, 1972. Priscilla is a retired Girl Scout executive. Three children -- Michael, retired Army aviation platoon sergeant, two Iraq tours and two Afghanistan, 4th Infantry Division and 1st Armored Division; Kathleen, retired Air Force officer, RC-135 navigator, five deployments to a desert location; and Casey, two Iraq tours with 3d Stryker Brigade, 2d Infantry Division, former drill sergeant at Fort Benning and now an Army recruiter. More me: BS journalism. Worked for five daily newspapers in Texas, fired by three, so I must have done something right. Fifth generation native Texan, living in Florida I can become part of the land in Texas.
