 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Enjoying life everyday to the fullist, for life is to short not too. Found my third childhood in the form of a Honda VTX1300T motorcycle. Enjoy riding all through New England. My wife has started riding with me here in 2009. She loves riding and I love having her on it with me. After 2 tours in Iraq, it really helps make up for the time we were apart. We go every place on it.

Retired working full time for the MA National Guard. 40 yrs plus. 23 drills, 30 annual training days, and maybe one more deployment till they tell me to get out. 23 months to go and will be 60 yrs old. Been a great career. Wouldn't change it for the world.
