I worked in the first pilot season of the Youth Conservation Corps. I served as both Enlisted (made E-6) and Officer (O-3) in the United States Navy for 13 years. Wish I had stayed in to retirement!

        • I now live in the Philippines where I write poetry and some prose. This is my passion and I am actively seeking to be published in print. I have posted many works on various websites and have had some re-published to others. I was recently published in the first issue of a new poetry publication, "In The Gesture Of Words" as well as in "Mad Swirl". You can find me on BlogSpot, Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, Instagram, etc. usually under the name "mindbringer". I contribute to a local zine called "mindbringer". I am a former Naval Officer with degrees in History, Philosophy, Classical Studies and Computer Information Systems/Computer Networking. I was born in Southern Illinois and have travelled and lived in many places in the United States as well as overseas, including 4 years during the 1980s in the Philippines. I moved back to the Philippines after 28 years in Colorado. I enjoy fishing, hiking, reading, chess, camping, history, philosophy, classics and spending time in my large personal library. I consider myself a Trekker and a Ringer and enjoy playing The Lord Of The Rings Online. I am a widower and have four gifted adult children. I am engaged to be married to a beautiful Filipina. I look forward to having grandchildren so that I might impart some of the lessons learned and wonders I have seen to them. I welcome your efforts to connect with me!
