The picture on my profile is just after I gave My Son Nathan his first salute at his commissioning ceremony. Nathan was stationed in Iraq in 2009-2012 and is presently stationed Fort Leavenworth attending Major school. He was promoted to Major effective March 1, 2019 which now makes him a field officer.
I have two sons and one daughter. I have eight living grandchildren four boys and four girls.

School Story:

My school memories involve motor vehicles.
I remember Randy Porwoll giving me a ride to school in his Antique Model A car.
John Ringsmuth had a car which he had striped down to the bare esentials so it was still street legal. I sat on a board for a seat and could see the Drive shaft on the floor.
I remember the year we failed to make the quota selling Fanny Farmer Candies and as a result did not get a day off. A bunch of students blocked the lunch room door in protest. As I did not agree with the boycott I entered into the lunch room by a back door which did not make me popular with the protesters. I think the school decided to give us a half day which we did not deserve.
