After gradution from Ritenour, I went in the Marine Corps. Briefly  I got out, but soon went back in the corp. After 23 years I RETIRED AS A gunny(GUNNERYSGT) . 

Actually at about 22 years the they told me in the officer training manual it once said that enlisted personnel are sneaky and conving and bear watching at all times, and I was tieing up to many officers watching me if I  would retire , they could free them up to due soon work.  

I have been married to my wife,     Becky for 33 years now, so I guess she is the only one who could put up with me. We have one child, a son Donny who's main goal in is to turn my hair gray. We live in Visyta Ca. and growing old and fat like everyone else.
