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.

RE: Merry Christmas! sorry to hear you had such a horrible year with devastating losses. My heart goes out to you, my friend.
I do hope the doctor was wrong with the diagnosis for both you & your wife. I pray you have a better--and healthier--2015.

May God bless your family and your New Year. I will pray for you both....Please keep me posted!

Your Friend,

_______THE CANDY CANE_________

A significant symbol of Christmas
Is the simple candy cane
Its shape is the crook of the shepherd
One of the first who came

The lively peppermint flavor is
The regal gift of spice
The white is Jesus' purity
The red is sacrifice

The narrow stripes are friendship
And the nearness of his love
Eternal sweet compassion
A gift from God above

The candy cane reminds us all
Of how much God cared
And like His Christmas gift to use
It's meant to be broken and shared
