Comments:

After a year at Georgia Tech, I attended the Naval Academy (Annapolis) and graduated in 1967. Spent 27 years on active duty flying for the Navy. After Navy retirement I spent 16 years working for a couple of small systems engineering companies supporting Navy and Army aviation projects. Fully retired summer of 2010 and followed four of my six grandchildren around as their parents moved from Army base to Army base.

Our older son, a retired Army colonel, and his family now live in Colorado Springs, CO. Paula and I live in a retirement community near our younger son and his family in the Leesburg VA area.

Doing various volunteer work, staying active and playing lots of pickleball (look it up on YouTube). We like to travel - several times a year to visit children and grandchildren in Colorado%

August 2013. My apologies for the right-hand most grandson, who apparently decided a grimace was better than a smile.
