Bio

I was born and raised in Florence, SC where I now live.

I attended the University of SC. Graduated from Florence-Darlington Technical College with degree in Civil Engineering Technology.

I served in the USMC from 1966-1972. I served in Vietnam 1967-68 in the Infantry as a machine gun team leader and Battalion S-2 Scout. Veteran of the Siege of Khe Sanh, 3rd platoon G Co,2nd Bn,26th Marines.
Major contributor to the Vietnam book "Into the DMZ" written by a friend of mine with whom I served with in Vietnam.

Also contributed to the following books on Vietnam:

"Marine"
"Battalion of Kings"
"Valley of Decision-The Siege of Khe Sanh"
"The Final Formation"

Retired from the South Carolina State Guard as a Colonel on June 1, 2013. Served 28 years and 8 months.

Interest include: Family history research, USMC military history (especially Vietnam), Indian artifact collecting, coin collecting, gun collecting, metal detecting and University of South Carolina Gamecock football. 42 year Gamecock Club member.

I have been taking photographs of veterans graves at the Florence National Cemetery since January, 2010 as I only live a mile away, I am able to get the photo the same day that it is requested. I enjoy doing this very much, especially for the Veterans as the guys gave their all for this country. They deserve to be remembered in all ways possible.
Thank you veterans for your service.
