Hello, and welcome to my profile page. I'm a retired USN aviator, a native of Los Angeles and a survivor of the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon. I am very blessed to be living in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with my lovely lady and our beloved canine and equine children.
After more than a dozen years as a member here, I've seen my share of silly and even childish exchanges over things that have nothing to do with the purpose of this very special place. It's sad but true that I rarely come here anymore because of these issues, and I sincerely hope that this doesn't happen to anyone else. Please remember that this is a cemetery and it should be treated as such, with dignity and care.
