Comments:

U.S. Navy 1969 thru 1973 in the SOSUS System (sound surveillance system) as a Radioman. Never set foot on a ship. Started AAction Pest Control of South Florida, sold in 1998 to my employee's. Purchased Avon Park Jet Center (Fixed Base Operator), added flight training and started Florida Aircraft Services, Inc. to do aircraft maintenance. Also started another pest control company and another company to bring in Mexican workers (legally) for the citrus industry. Sold these businesses to my employee's at the end of 2007 to go on this little adventure to Iraq. It is not a great place to visit or a great place to live. Still here, will probably be here another year. The money is really, really good, but the waste of your, i.e. our tax money is very,very bad.

I'm also a private pilot, multi engine rated. I guess that is my hobby. My wife is OK with all this as long as she gets to do her traveling. She is Ok with my flying, and I do not like to travel so everything works out pretty good.

School Story:

Giving an oral report in Mrs. Hankins class. It was really bad, my hands were shaking so bad. Really, really traumatic at the time, but I have gotten over it. It took a while!!
