About Me

Grew up just outside a southwest Oklahoma town, pop. 600.  My USMC DD-214 shows my occupation as farm laborer.  A high school buddy joined the Corps and was wounded in the hill fights.  That, the invasions of eastern European countries, the Cuban missile crisis, and Kruschev's promise at the U.N. to bury us was all I needed.  I joined the Corps in 1966.  Those were the most definitive years of my life.

I returned and used the G.I. Bill to earn a geology degree at the Univ. of Oklahoma.  I explored for coal for a decade, and then for oil and gas for another three decades.  Thanks to the G.I. Bill, I have been paid to have fun for forty years.  I have no plans to retire.  Why would I?

I have a wonderful wife of 41 years, two children who majored in science and engineering, and two grandchildren who keep me occupied on most Friday afternoons and evenings.

Volunteer efforts are several, but the most important is the material support of my old Marine Corps unit.
