Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Thank you for visiting the memorial for Morgan Thompson
Hello sir,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for visiting my friend Morgan Thompson's memorial. The note you left touched my heart and is so true. Thank you and keep up the good work you do within the Find a Grave community. It is appreciated.
Richard, I want to sincerely thank you for your service to our country. I was called for the draft during Vietnam but could not pass the physical because of a lung condition. Morgan was the first person that I personally knew that died in Vietnam. I agree 100% with you that it was a disgrace the way these heroes were treated on their return. I have Relatives that have fought in the wars since the Revolutionary War till today and to disrespect any of these men is unthinkable to me. I am so disheartened of the direction our great country has been heading.
