Tell us a little about your cav days.
Tough time adjusting, at first; had never really been away from home before. But once I did, I had the time of my life, especially whenever my radar squad was deployed to Camp Reed for border surveillance missions; I enjoyed those deployments immensely. And Nurnberg itself was fantastic!!
Tell us a little about you now.
I've been married, divorced, and married again; currently live in the Kansas City area, where I've been since about six months after I got out of the Army in 1989. Work for Napa as a delivery driver; generally, I'm just enjoying life!
