    R.o.t.c.

    Does ROTC count??
    I served bravely at Michigan Sate College from 1953 to 1955. Narrowly escaped serious injury by a speeding bicycle who was illegally riding on sidewalk!
    I was an M.P. and directed traffic during weekly parades down Grand River St. in East Lansing on Thursdays. I was never shot at but I didn't go to West Virginia Tech.

    There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. -Logan Pearsall Smith, essayist (1865-1946)

    U.S. Army - June 11, 1970 to February 24, 1972, MP, 4th USASA Field Station.

    Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office - February 1973 to April 1993, numerous assignments, retired a Lieutenant. Very political. On very rare occasions you get to make a difference in someone's life.

    Most of the time neither was enjoyable. But it was worth it. I learned a lot about people.

    When I was 33 years old my oldest son told me that I was very old. He was 5.

    The happiest day of my life was the day first son was born. The day my second son was born tied that.
