  • VR-55 (1978 to 1985)

    2. Selected and Advanced to Chief Petty Officer.
  • HS-85
  • VR-57
    1. Went to West Africa for 2 months
    2. Made several trips to the Phillipine Islands

I retired in 1987......Went to college and got into acting. Mostly local stuff, but one movie
called Illegal Smile. (Kind of a strange movie.) But.....Hollywood has not called yet.

I live in Eureka, CA. behind the Redwood Curtain. I married a Coastie Storekeeper. (The best
wife I have ever had.)
