Marine Corps 1974-1978


I spent 4 years of my life serving my country as a proud member of the U.S. Marine Corps.

My service in the Corps has had a lasting affect on my life. I am grateful for the strength and character developed while in the USMC. I was fortunate not to be in any combat operations but the Marines especially Boot Camp were extremely difficult, there is no doubt that I am a better person as a result of my service and time in the Corps!

I have created this little space on the web to honor the proud tradition of the Marine Corps and share my thoughts on military service.

I found my bride and the Love of my life while stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA. and met her while attending Church and have been married now for over 42 years and have 3 very beautiful daughters and 5 wonderful grandchildren. 


I have made many lifelong friends in the Corps we have a sacred bond that cannot be broken.

The character and integrity of the friends I have made in the Corps is incomparable.

I am fortunate to share many good times with my friends and family. 

This is why I value my country and I served with a grateful heart.


Enjoy my pictures below.  Oohrah!!
