About Me:
I was on active duty with the Marines from 1958 till 1962 as an instructor with my home base being at the Naval Amphibious Base, Landing Force Training Unit, Coronado, CA. Members from our unit traveled throughout the Far East on mobile traiining teams logging 100's of thousands of miles while giving classes pertaining to amphibious warfare. I was an instructor specializing in ship to shore landing of wheel and tracked vehicles and towed and self propelled artillery.

I am now a retired jeweler, I travel a lot, enjoy my motor home, camping, and my latest hobby of air-gunning.
