Comments:

February 2013, I still have a lot of life left in me and so I was asked to join Los Alamos Technical Associates. I write and teach Aviation Security; Port and Maritime Security; Cybersecurity along with Security Operations Management. Additionally, I travel to India, Dubai, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to teach classes. Fun job, and they pay me!!!! I spent four months in various parts of India, updating the India equivalent of our Homeland Security; gas and oil security along with a port assessment. It was a shock seeing poverty at its worst.


December 21, 2012, I have retired from The Boeing Company after 38 years. A great Company and I enjoyed a wonderful career and where I was given a lot of wonderful assignments...most of them anyway. : < )

August 1965 I was in Vietnam for two years and remained in the Naval Reserve for 29 years. While in Vietnam, I was in the Navy Band for special occassions (saxophone player), where I was the lead sax player for MISTY and of COURSE ANCHORS AWEIGH; and Information Specialist during that "on-hours". I have personal pictures of John Wayne and myself aboard the aircraft carrier that I was on. I was also featured in LIFE Magazine as "one of those sailors in San Francisco." During that time, I served with the three Admiral Staff positions in Seattle heading up the Office Automation project; I taught computer classes in Rota Spain; Hawaii; Japan and Whidbey Island. My last assignment was the Senior Enslisted Advisor of the Fleet Training Group and three ships in Seattle. I retired as a Senior Chief Information Specilaist. I miss it still and have so many wonderful military friends.

I have been married and divorce and am married to Juanita my wife of 21 years. I have held positions from Data Center Manager; Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations Planning; Security Specialist and Security Investigator.

I took three years away from The Boeing Company in 1999 and was a Senior Software Engineer for Science Applications International in New Orleans (Before Katrina). I was transferred to Ft Collins, CO where I was the Data Center Manager for the USDA and Continuity of Operations. Then I was fortunate to have been transferred back to the NW where I worked on Homeland Security Port Operations for Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett. I went on a special assignment for Homeland Security in heading up risks and vulnerabilities of the Navy Bases at Indian Island; Whidbey Island; Bangor Submarine Base and Keyport. I then return back to The Boeing Company, where I have a total of 38 years. I will probably keep working until later, as I love my job and the many many many opportunities I have.

I miss a lot of my friends from high school and the military, and now live in Marysville, WA.

We have been to Hawaii where Juanita and I were married on the Beach at Sunset at the military Hotel Hale Koa. We have been to Hawaii many times and love it there. Kauai and Maui are our favorites.

I volunteer for the Everett Police Department and for the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.


We have two Havanese dogs (PIPPI and BELLA).

School Story:

When I got back from Vietnam in 1967, I was going to Olympic College during the evenings and teaching during the day. I finished my Associate Degree and then back in 1990 I began attending The Univeristy of Phoenix where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and a couple of years later, I completed my Master's Degree in Computer Science. I have an an associate's degree in Criminal Juctice.

I became Certified in anti-Terrorism Studies. Most recently I have been certified in Level three of Homeland Security. I am certified as a CISSP, CSSI, and I am working on my CPP.

I was Vice President of ARFFTRAININGCONCEPTS.COM, and will be continuing my career in Active Shooter Awareness; Maritime Security and Aviation Security.
