Comments:

After OHS, I graduated from GMU and started working at IBM, Manassas designing and building SONAR and for all U.S. submarines and recently Command and Control systems for some international subs. My most interesting business trips were to: Newport RI, Athens Greece, Munich Germany, Rio de Janeiro Brazil, Rome Italy, Halifax Nova Scotia, and the Bahamas. Almost all my business trips were near the ocean since submarines like to be in the water. I always took some time off at the end of the trip to enjoy the location. Submarines are jammed full of equipment and electronics which I find interesting; however, it was nice to surface, get back to port, and open the hatch and see the sun again! I was only at sea during short sea trials. Most of my work was in an office or laboratory using simulators to test our equipment. I retired after 42 years.

Some of my hobbies are photography, sailing, woodworking, building remote controlled airplanes and flying aerobatics with them. I am married and we have 2 daughters and one son. I am currently building a custom home for retirement.
