I served from 1976 to 1980; then reserve time; in 1985 went back on active duty until I retired in 1999.
My highest rank was Master Sergeant/E8. I enjoyed my time in the Corps. We raised three boys all the way through college degrees. I'm currently 100% disabled; the VA hospital in Cincinnati has done a terrific job helping me get through all my medical needs.
I wish to thank everyone who supported our military forces, not just us warheads.
Proud of my son who decided to join the Kentucky Army National Guard.
