Veteran Navy Tailhook Aviator. Gulf War Vet. Retired from the reserves, not so recently anymore (time has flown). My civilian job is a spacecraft design engineer, supporting both commercial and government/DoD programs. Also part time commercial pilot. If I have the time to make contributions on FR, they will probably be from a technical viewpoint (I have a good BS detector!) or from a National Security perspective, though lately I find myself trying to inject my own brand of humor as well.

I am a Christian, Father, American, and Conservative Republican, in that order.

Hobbies: Flying, Skydiving, SCUBA, and Shooting Sports (all for over 35 years) and just about anything outdoors.
