Comments:

After graduating from high school, I went on to enlist in the US Navy in May of 1968 and did my boot camp in Great Lakes. From there I attended Aviation Machinist Mate speciality school in Memphis Tenn. and then I was transferred on to a Naval base, NAS Lemoore, in California. As I settled into life as a sailor at Lemoore, I was drawn to the Helicopters and Aircraft. I went on to become a plane captain and received my aircrew wings on fix-wing aircraft and helicopters. I became a member of the Air Search and Rescue Team going out on missions hoping to save the lives of those in perilous circumstances or to do recovery. I met my wife, Debbie, at a dance, some of us sailors would go to, trying to meet some good looking gals, in our off time. At first, I didn't think I had a chance with her, but I was persistent and turned on my charm, Ha Ha. We were married about a year and a half later, so I must have done something right and we are still happily married after 47 years. When my required time in the Navy, 8 years of service, came to an end, Debbie and I relocated to San Jose, Ca and I went to work for United Aircraft, where we built the boosters for the Apollo space program. We were blessed with our first born child 4 yrs later and our lives changed forever. After several years of commuting every day, we decided we wanted a little slower pace and be closer to family, so we moved to Clovis, California and we had our second child.I worked 26 years as an auto technician, I enrolled in college, received my degree and then went on to work for a school district. I became the supervisor in Transportation at night and retired after 15 years of service. Over the years, I also felt the desire to still serve our country and had joined the California Air National Guard, traveled and served our country in many parts of the world and retired from military service as an E-7 Master Sergeant, after serving a total of 30 years. We are now happily retired, have two furry babies we love and enjoy traveling, spending time with family and love antiquing, looking for new treasures. We look forward to many new adventures, enjoying life, and meeting new friends along the way.
