A little bit about me.

My Navy career lasted over 34 years. Mostly Reserve duty, but that allowed flexibility in where I went for duty. Seven weeks in Egypt, three in Naples, Italy, and two weeks each in the Philippines, Japan, and three more in Thailand made for interesting summers. Athens, Georgia was a recurring destination. Two deployments included Diego Garcia (where I didn’t want to leave) and Afghanistan. Those added Singapore, Kuwait, Qatar, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and Germany to my stops. Vacations have included Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Dominican Republic, Mexico, cruises on both coasts of Mexico, France, England, Scotland and Wales.
I think I’ve flown over every timezone at least twice. I have overpacked and under packed. I was dubbed “Commander Gadget” by a friend on our way to the Middle East.
I’ve made many friends around the world, mostly online, but have met scores in person and have had the privilege of enjoying their hospitality.
I hope to add you to this wonderful group of friends.
