Hi Rich,
My God it’s been along time since the last time we talked. A lot of water under the bridge since then. I did not include my commission and rank in this website because it appeared to be more of an enlisted website. Truth be told I always felt more comfortable around Enlisted men anyway. They never seem to have an ulterior motive.

I lost my wife and September 2012, still have not remarried. Probably never will.

What’s up with you?
