 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

After serving on active duty with the Air Force for 8 years, I spent 4 years in the Michigan Army National Guard in an Infantry unit.  My experience as a Security Policeman was very beneficial when I became a Squad Leader when I served with Co. B 1/125th Infantry.

I have spent the last 20 years as a Police Officer and a Detective.

My oldest son is in the Air Force and is stationed in the UK.

My middle son is in the Army National Guard.

My youngest son is in the Army and is currently deployed.

"There are three types of leaders.  One who makes things happen, one who watches things happen, and one who wonders what happened." (unknown)

"To succeed in life, you must carry your own ruck." 

It's mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it don't matter.'  (unknown)

"If ya ain't cheatin, ya ain't tryin."  (MSgt Paul Wheeler- 55th SPS, ABGD Flight Sgt- Volant Scorpion Deployment, a very motivating leader)
