GLOBAL POWER...GLOBAL REACH!!!!

I was born and raised on Guam (before it became in danger of tipping over); attended Newbury Park Academy in California ('65-'69). Served in US Air Force for 24 years (March 1971- April 1995). Took two month-long family trips in Europe via Eurail ('91 and '93), bag-dragging all over Europe. We also visited Aleppo, Syria twice and I visited Camapa (Samara), Poccia (Russia) three times.
My wife of 44 years (as of Nov. 17, 2017), Karen, and I have lived in Garland (Dallas), TX, since our family's return to the US from Incirlik Air Base, Turkey ('88 to '95).
After basic training at Lackland AFB, TX, my first duty station was Reese AFB (Lubbock), TX ('71-'74). Then, Andersen AB, Guam ('74-'76), Ellsworth AFB, SD ('76-'77), and Randolph AFB, TX (AFMPC '77-'82, HQ ATC '82-'85), Zaragoza AB, Spain ('85-'88), and Incirlik AB (Adana), Turkey, where I retired on 1 Apr 1995 (April Fool's Day).
Our four 'kids' are all married and out of the house....along with our thirteen grandchildren (8 grandsons, 5 granddaughters).
