|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.|

dear Rick I would like to sponsor this young soldier's page. Could you tell me how to do it.
Plus I would like to know how to link his actual page on my own page so that people can click straight to it.
Do you know how to do it ?

|Frank R. Adamski||Bob St. George|
Thank you for leaving the memorial token for my first cousin, Bob St. George, (F.A.G. page # 168014107). I'm not sure if you noticed but the two of you share some commonalities. You were both members of the USMC, and you both worked within the criminal justice system as well. Bob worked for the Oklahoma Department of Parole as indicated in his F.A.G. bio. He had a unique approach to interacting with young parolees. Thanks again for leaving that wonderful note on his page! You are the best.
