|Bio and Links|
I am a Son of the South (hometown in northeastern Florida; college educated in southwestern Missouri), career soldier (retired as a LTC in 2008 with over 29 years, and a subsequent Retiree Recall put me over 31) who was originally trained in the USMCR (M Company (-), 3/24 Marines, 4th MAR DIV, Semper Fi!) with combat in OPN Urgent Fury (Grenada), El Salvador, OPN Desert Storm (Persian Gulf War), OPN Joint Guard (Bosnia), OPN Enduring Freedom (Global War on Terror), & OPN Iraqi Freedom (Global War on Terror/ Global Contingency Opn - whatever "politically correct" term the liberals invent for it in the next 4 years; still the same fight, same enemy). I also served in OPN Noble Eagle (Global War on Terror/ USA Homeland defense), OPN Volcano (disaster relief, Armero, Columbia), and USA disaster relief during Hurricanes Hugo, Opal, Frances, and TS Alberto in Florida. I have been married since 1989 and have 1 son. I am also a careerist with the Florida Department of Corrections and have worked criminal justice since 1986. In my youth, I attained Eagle Scout with the BSA and was a Triple Letterman (football/ wrestling/ track) in High School with my greatest achievement in athletics being amateur boxing (72-3, 55 KOs). I also served 2 years with the FFA Chapter during high school. Thanks to all of you who have visited and left flowers/ comments on my memorials, and especially those who have sponsored them.|

Hank Emerson 142306500 was the best in Vietnam. Known as the gunfighter he won so many battles over there he was the most feared officer the NVA & VC forces ever faced . Tibor Rubin 155803455 served in Korea he has a great story. Andrea Harris 68611120 was only 4 years old when she was killed by a drunk driver. She was killed on my birthday so to me she is sentimental. Thank You for all that you do your the best

Not a problem. You can leave it. I thought maybe it was a picture taken at her home and wanted to note it in the bio. Regards, Phyllis :o)

Hi Rick - looks like my memorial page was combined with another. Didn't realize there was a duplicate. Anyway, I noticed your photo of a shrub by a home in the photos and wondered what the significance was. I'll be happy to add info in the bio regarding the photo if you send me info. Thanks, Phyllis
