Janet and I were born and raised in Heber Springs, Arkansas. We were high school sweethearts and married young. After high school, I joined the US Army and travelled all over the world. Upon my retirement from the military, we settled in Washington state and except for a 3 year span of living in Arizona have remained there.
During my military service I was an Aviation Warrant Officer and flew helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. I had tours of duty in Vietnam (2) Germany, Alaska, Hawaii, and many different places in the US. After retirement from the Army I turned my hobby (computers) into a paying job and have worked for the State of Washington and the State of Arizona managing various computer operations.
