 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Officially retired. I stay busy keeping up with yard work, home repairs and working on and in my detached wood shop. I am rated at 70% disabled and 100% unemployable. I receive all my healthcare at the VA Outpatient Clinic in Austin and have been well taken care of there. I have found that being polite and patient with VA workers in order to get to the care of the doctors is absolutely neccessary.
I have served with the Texas State Militia, Guardian Company, since 2013. I am a Sergeant and the Logistics NCO.
