Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:

I'm proud to have been a part of a great effort, with talented and dedicated men. I have benefited from serving my country, first by observing how major problems and difficulties were overcome, by the benefit of a quality engineering education, and the richness of knowing about other cultures, religions and people. I'm proud of spending 3 months at sea, having crossed the Equator 4 times and spending the same date twice at the international date line while a full-time member of the Air Force.

Comments:

My work career was spent with a major electric utility and am enjoying a pleasant retirement on Lake Norman, North Carolina.
