Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

2 Tampa Police Officers
Here is 2 Tampa police officers who were killed in the line of duty. Gerald Rauft 55936477 today is his birthday his angel day is July 24 and Richard Cloud 52492952 I knew his son he was after very very bad drug dealers they put a hit on him they went to his door and by the luck of the draw he opened the door and they gunned him down. His son saw it all he told me if he or any body else would have opened the door they would have been collateral damage. The guy who master plan the hit was arrested and found guilty and was put to death in 1984 there was some justice done. I can go on for hours about what happened please leave them flowers a always thank you.

RE: Thank you.
So sorry for my confusion, and so sorry to hear that your Dad died just a few days before Father's Day - not that there is ever a good time to lose the most important man in your life.

So sorry to hear about the death of your oldest brother. May you be comforted by the wonderful memories you have of him, and the knowledge that he has joined other family members in Heaven.

A AAA American at Find A Grave
Thank you again not jsut what you do on here, nor for your service and/or Scouts. But for being an American not a laggard full of idle words making that person (unamed) a real loquacious palaverer !GBY < :><~~~

Now a question for you to search and find. Who was US President Percy Darth Amboy? HINT;

Just prior to an old friend acquired American Heritage in the June A.D. 1976 issue I believe pages 20-22 ..! You shall find more fact. Which is so much nicer than fiction.

PS: Do you know the picture I have here? It is the first from NASA of planet Neptune.
