Biography

My father passed away in 2002. My mother in 1990. Being young during his time in the Air Force I never really knew what he did. He did speak of his work later in life. I have learned a lot from going thru his personal effects. I am very thankful for his efforts and all of you for putting your lives in danger and your service to our country.
