|Bio and Links|
I am a Son of the South (hometown in northeastern Florida; college educated in southwestern Missouri), career soldier (retired as a LTC in 2008 with over 29 years, and a subsequent Retiree Recall put me over 31) who was originally trained in the USMCR (M Company (-), 3/24 Marines, 4th MAR DIV, Semper Fi!) with combat in OPN Urgent Fury (Grenada), El Salvador, OPN Desert Storm (Persian Gulf War), OPN Joint Guard (Bosnia), OPN Enduring Freedom (Global War on Terror), & OPN Iraqi Freedom (Global War on Terror/ Global Contingency Opn - whatever "politically correct" term the liberals invent for it in the next 4 years; still the same fight, same enemy). I also served in OPN Noble Eagle (Global War on Terror/ USA Homeland defense), OPN Volcano (disaster relief, Armero, Columbia), and USA disaster relief during Hurricanes Hugo, Opal, Frances, and TS Alberto in Florida. I have been married since 1989 and have 1 son. I am also a careerist with the Florida Department of Corrections and have worked criminal justice since 1986. In my youth, I attained Eagle Scout with the BSA and was a Triple Letterman (football/ wrestling/ track) in High School with my greatest achievement in athletics being amateur boxing (72-3, 55 KOs). I also served 2 years with the FFA Chapter during high school. Thanks to all of you who have visited and left flowers/ comments on my memorials, and especially those who have sponsored them.|

|hillary stewart||Lovely messages|
I was just watching a rerun of Johnny Carson with Dean Martin, Burt Reynolds and Buddy Hackett and looked up Buddy on Wikipedia, saw he was a veteran and then visited his page here and saw you left a lovely Passover passage - and that you leave kind messages for many. Just wanted to say how absolutely lovely that is that you take the time to leave messages - and that they're so thoughtful!
