 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Aside from a three-and-one-half year stint as Tactical Officer of C Co. and Field Music at Valley Forge Military Academy & College in Wayne, PA, I worked in the publishing industry after retiring from the Army in September 1991. I started out as Executive Editor of Presidio Press, a San Francisco Bay Area book publisher specializing in military history and military affairs. After leaving VFMA&C in the summer of 1998, I became my own boss--using contacts I'd made with Presidio to line up freelance copy-editing projects for several commercial and scholarly book publishers. I finally had to give up work entirely in 2004, however, when my body began letting me down. Fortunately, all of my disabling conditions are either directly or indirectly service-connected--making me eligible for a wide range of VA benefits--without which I'd be up the proverbial estuary without a manipulator!
   
Other Comments:
For the last 19 years I've been living on the Big Island of Hawaii with my wife, Carol, in a subdivision about a mile outside of Mountain View--almost exactly halfway between Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. However, I'm moving to Idaho in May 2019 and will be settling in the Sagle area not far from the Pend Oreille River. Between the Blue State politics, earthquakes and eruptions, I decided it was time to bid Hawaii Aloha and head for cooler climes!

Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
SN Kevin Sandler

Worst Moment
Going to a local nightclub with the entire class in Class A uniform for a party the night before graduation and having my classmates discover that I wasn't old enough to drink! I'd managed to conceal the fact I was under 21 and I hung back until all the rest had entered. Ironically, I was the only one who got "carded." As a show of solidarity, they all agreed to take the party to the all-ranks club on post so I could drink beer with them. . . .
