I've had a great career, seen a lot of places and made a lot of great friends. It's interesting that no matter how bad the deployment, there was always good friends to have a cold beer or play cards with.

Deployments

I've pretty much been involved in every operation in the last 20+ years. Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Southern Watch, Northern Watch, Deny Flight, Deliberate Force, Desert Fox, Iraqi Freedom, Noble Eagle, Allied Force (actually Allied Vacation at Bandirma, Turkey). And can't forget the Flags (Red, Green, Maple), Archer, Hammer, WIC...more TDY's than I can count.
