After graduating from NNHS, I attended Fork Union Military Academy for a year, attended University of Richmond, graduated from University of Alabama, BS in Business.  Since I was in ROTC in college Uncle Sam waited no time in sending me to school.  At Ft Bragg, NC, went to psychological operations training, at Ft Knox, KY, learned to be a tank commander (coldest winter ever recorded), and at Ft Holibird, MD, intelligence gathering school.  I was assigned as a Military Intelligence Officer in Okinawa, Japan. 
I had met Susan Whitaker of Midlothian, VA. at the U of R.  We were married and wives were allowed to accompany husbands on tours of duty to Japan.  She taught school for DOD while in Okinawa.  We were fortunate to travel to most countries in S E Asia.  We really got the travel bug, enjoying learning about other cultures. 
After military service, I took a position with Richmond based retailer Best Products.  The company was in a rapid growth mode.  I was a store manager, opening and managing stores in Michigan, Ohio and New Jersey.  Although we liked living in south Jersey, we decided to move back home to become self-employed and close to aging parents.  We owned and operated a travel agency in Richmond for 27 years.  Being my own boss was a plus.  Most of our business was groups and cruises.  Susan escorted many senior groups to Alaska, Europe, Australia and other destinations.  We were able to travel to 6 of the 7 continents.  It was a great run.  We are now retired living in Richmond.
Looking forward to seeing all of you in October.
