My decorations include the Legion of Merit, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal with 5 oak leaf clusters plus 13 other medals and ribbons.

After retirement from the Air Force, we moved to south-central Tennessee where I have pursued my other interests as an artist, an author, a treasure hunter, a prospector, a fisherman, and a rogue philosopher.
