Well, just to catch up a bit since 1960: My father, an Air Force officer, passed away a few days before we all graduated in 1960. So, shortly after graduating from WL, my mother and brother and I moved to Colorado Springs, CO, one of our mother's favorite places (and mine!). I attended Texas A&M, graduating in 1964 with a BS in aerospace engineering. I entered the USAF that same year, where I served as an officer until 1975. During that time, I commanded a Minuteman ICBM launch control crew in Montana, and received a masters in aero engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH. In 1975 I entered Federal Civil Service and served in a variety of positions in the technical intelligence career area until my retirement in 1999. During that time I was fortunate to be able to play an active role in supporting the INF Treaty, which resulted in an unbelievably fascinating visit into military installations within the (then) Soviet Union. Actually, that career area led me to a number of other fascinating places and a number of remarkable assignments as well. Shortly after retiring from Federal Civil Service, I accepted a position with Riverside Research Institute (RRI is headquartered in New York city; the position is in the Dayton OH area), and have continued to support technical intelligence efforts for DIA, NGA, and the USAF ever since. My wife Judy and I have been married for 42 years, and we live in Centerville OH (just south of Dayton). We have five adult children and four grandchildren. I have maintained my WL-initiated and very close friendship with Midd Hunt throughout all these years, and I am very much looking forward to seeing my other WL classmates again!
