Well let me see,

We got out after the first gulf war, my boys were going up and I was not going to miss that) moved back to Georgia.  I went to work for a small Sheriff's Office outside of Atlanta. I left there and decided to go big.  I came to DeKalb County, freaking murder capital of the south, and became a Motor Cop for 8 years and then I made the move to HOMICIDE.  I tell you what I you would be amazed the way they kill each other.

I am still married to Uschi 27 years.  I live on 5 ac just off a lake in Jasper Gounty Ga I have a big ass Harley we ride all over the country on. 

I have my boys, Patrick who is 26 getting ready to get married and plyed college Football works in LaGrange GA and is just freaking great.  Then there is the baby, James he graduated from Georgia Southern Su 4.2 with a full ride and is now a UT Knoxville on a ride for his Masters.
