 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am retired. I draw VA and Social Security disability. I like to play golf but have not in a year or so. I bought a fishing kayak two years ago and spend all my time, when I can, fishing in saltwater and freshwater. My favorite time is spending it with my seven grand children.
