 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
    I am assisting my Grandfather Doug Stinnett with his profile.  He is currently retired for the 3rd time, and living in Roswell, New Mexio with his wife Verlaine.   My grandfather is a hero to many people, and has touched the lives of many.   After Raising 4 children of his own, he took in 3 of his grandchildren, one of them being me.  My father was sent to prison when I was 4y/o.  My grandfather got off work the night my father was hauled away after working from 4:00a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and drove from Roswell, NM to Kansas City, Kansas.  He only stopped for a 45 minute nap, food, and restroom breaks in fear of me being taken into State Custody.  He also took in my twin cousins while his daughter was dying of cancer.  Doug is now 73 years old.  He is in pretty good health.  He went to Missouri this last November to do some Deer hunting with my father.  After retirung from the Air Force he drove Semi-Trucks hauling Oil for quite a few years.  After that He began pumping gas at the air station in Roswell, N.M.  It didn't take long before he was the Vice President of Great Southwest Aviation.  ( If any one who views this profile knows him, please leave us a message.  I will pass it on to him.  He would love to hear from some of the guys who are still around.  I am a Marine Corps Veteran and a member of Marine Together we served.)

Thanks for Viewing,

Steve Stinnett
