    Smile Newbie

    Hello everyone, I just found and registered on this site. I am an old vet.

    Served 4 years active duty, regular army and am a Vietnam veteran. Spent my 4 years in the Army Security Agency - basic training at Ft. Dix; a year in electronics and intelligence schools at Fort Gorden GA and Fort Meade MD (NSA); a year in RVN: and my last 2 years at Vint Hills Farm Station (ASA) in Warrenton, VA.

    I served a short time with the Massachusetts ANG while in college, after I left the Army. I am a 1980 graduate of Northeastern University in Boston, Marketing Major. I worked in high tech sales and marketing for years, ending with IBM in 2002. I then worked for the Commonwealth of PA for eight years handling the federal grant accounting for the PA Dept of Military and Veterans Affairs. I retired from CoPA last year and am now enjoying the good life! I enjoy Cowboy Action Shooting and Sporting Clay and do my own reloading for both. I also enjoy fly fishing and woodworking. However, all of this takes a back seat to my four beautiful grand daughters!!:kiss

    I recently joined the local VFW Honor Guard. We provide Military Burial Honors for our brother and sister veterans locally and on rotation at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery. I really find this a very satisfying way of serving my fellow veterans.

    That's about it from me. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

    Welcome! Thanks for your service then and now. It's like getting a chilly pool... just find a place and jump in.
