Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in the USMC from 1968 thru 1970. My MOS was a mechanic and engineering vehicle operator. While in Vietnam my duties beyond MOS were perimeter guard four nights a week, convoys, in-country temporary duties included firebase support and escorting property transfers.
How are you #StillServing?
As Captain in the Air Force Auxiliary, I’ve been part of many ground and air search sorties. My duties include Aerospace Education to our members and support to the Aerospace Education Member (STEM teachers) program. I and several other CAP members recently assisted in COVID-19 medical inventory warehousing in southeast Michigan. Many of our members are current in first aid and CPR and are also previous servers in all professional military and civilian fields.
Why do you do it?
I felt after retirement I had many skills and experiences to pass on to several younger generations. I then had the time to give back in any way I could be of help. My commercial pilot skills are still active and I have proven proficiency in over twenty aircraft through the years, so I thought those and many other skills should not just go to waste.
