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.

Thank you for visiting the memorial for Morgan Thompson
Hello sir,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for visiting my friend Morgan Thompson's memorial. The note you left touched my heart and is so true. Thank you and keep up the good work you do within the Find a Grave community. It is appreciated.
Richard, I want to sincerely thank you for your service to our country. I was called for the draft during Vietnam but could not pass the physical because of a lung condition. Morgan was the first person that I personally knew that died in Vietnam. I agree 100% with you that it was a disgrace the way these heroes were treated on their return. I have Relatives that have fought in the wars since the Revolutionary War till today and to disrespect any of these men is unthinkable to me. I am so disheartened of the direction our great country has been heading.

Louis Chevrolet
Louis 1904 needs a flower along with his brother Gaston 2402 Chevrolets not only were the best sellers and racers they served the military great. Chevrolet trucks were the fastest the most reliable best truck that the United States Military could ever have. In 1941 before the United States entered the war the British used Chevrolets in North Africa and had a huge edge over the Germans. In Vietnam Chevrolet 30 series pick up trucks were so good they could pick up wounded were in area that choppers couldnt get in a dust off and the medics had a lot of room to work were the old slow box jeeps couldnt and have the speed to get to a MASH unit. After that the ambalances years later went from station wagons to trucks all beacuse of there preformance in Vietnam. And today Chevys are the best the military has.

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.
