 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Currently totally retired.  Prior to that I was the Eglin AFB, FL  Government Special Security Officer (GSSO).
Other Comments:
 After I retired from the USAF, I worked for the Dept of Energy Strategic Petroleum Reserve in New Orleans.  Then onto General Motors, Detroit.  Left Michigan for the sunshine of Florida.   I  was employed at Eglin AFB for the next 16 years and enjoy each day.  Lots of former co workers here and the USAF's finest, Air Force Cops, working, living and retired in this area.  Always time for a good story or two. :>)
