Worked most of my life in some type of mechanical field, from the Iron Foundrys in Michigan to the heat treating business in California. At 29 I decided to go back to school where I worked on my GED then took 2 years of advanced auto mechanics. ( Graduated with Honors ) Spent 10 years in Florida as a Cadillac Service Manager. Since a divorce I returned to North Carolina with my daughter and now have a ( don't laugh ) 4th wife. We have been together since 1990 and when asked which wife she is she will reply " HIS LAST " Loving life and the banjo, 2 years til retirement then I can spend more time with my Veterans programs and the banjo. I am a prior Viet Nam era Veteran and a member of the American Legion, and the VFW where I am heavily involved with our Military Honor Guard/Burial Detail. All gave some, Some gave all.......Now it is my turn to show my respect and gratitude.
