 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Enjoying life, as we travel, be it on a cruise, flight, or a car trip. So much to see, and so little time remaining. Every day is a gift to be thankful for. Still, much more to see and do, as we continue the march.
Other Comments:
Enjoying my full retirement from the USMC,(20 yrs),and the Department of Agriculture(22yrs) as a Federal Meat & Poultry Inspector. I conducted anti, and post mortem inspections on all red meat species, that are sold in commerce. I have also been tasked with inspecting equine(horses) for export to France. Inspected poultry, and red meat in slaughter plants, and processing plants, from Maine to Virginia. Worked with Veterinarians on pathology dispositions of all species of red meat, and poultry. Conducted Pre-operational, and operational inspections of facilities, and plant personnel. Had to ensure product ingredient formulations were being adhered to. Restaurants, and supermarkets were not under our control. Only Federally regulated establishments were inspected, by the field Inspectors. We were considered the "Police Force", for the meat, and poultry industry. Consumer protection was our ultimate responsibility, and goal.
