|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). 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 retiree from the Florida Department of Corrections and worked criminal justice 29.5 years. 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 Rick for your service. It is an honor to meet you.
Hi Rick. I was looking at your Bio and wondered if you ever met my stepbrother who was a USMC Col and served in Desert Storm controlling the AWACS. I even seen him in the movie Desert Storm Rising. Col Tim Kirk. And I just wanted to say thank you for the kind posts and flowers.
