 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I retired from 3M-Co., with my last assignment being Portland, Or. After a year of retirement living in Portland, my wife and I relocated to Montana, my home state. I enjoy hunting and fishing, and Montana memories of how it used to be drew me back.My family is the most important thing to me, so I look forward to all my visits with my grandkids and kids.
   
Other Comments:
My 3 years and 9 months of active duty in the Marines and Navy introduced me to some of the best people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I have rubbed shoulders with some very high powered, educated, well informed people from all walks of life. To be sure, my relationships and friendships with people in the military are number # 1 in my book !
