 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After leaving the MP Corps in September 1981, I became a deputy sheriff with East Baton Rouge Parish, Baton Rouge, LA for a short while.  Due to experience as MP accident investigator, was hired as an insurance investigator; after 25 years insurance claims, investigations and material damage appraisals, decided it was time to live for myself!

My wife, Diane, and I had two wonderful sons, Eric now 35 and Jason, 30.  She and I now live in Dennison, OH approximately 25 miles south of Canton and 40 miles north of Cambridge.

Diane, for those of you who don't know, is my "mail order bride" from Washington, PA.  I met her through a newspaper article in December 1970 for Christmas mail for GI's overseas while I was stationed in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam with 592d Transportation Company.  I originally ETS'd in August 1972, married her in October 1972 and re-enlisted for Okinawa where I became an OJT MP.  Thanks to my patrol supervisor, SSG Jim Levangie, I was laterally promoted from SP5 to SGT and was awarded MOS 95B3LGMQ9.  Thanks, Jim! !
