U.S. Marine Corps: 1968-1988
After graduation, I joined the Marine Corps and loved it so much I made it my career. I was assigned to many administrative tasks and duty stations from South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington DC, and Okinawa Japan. As an enlisted, I was promoted through the ranks from Pvt to Staff Sergeant. About mid-way through my career, I became a commissioned officer and retired as a Captain.
After I retired from the Marine Corps, I started a pet grooming salon in Falls Church, VA (I had apprenticed in this trade about year prior during much of my off-duty time). I wanted to move back to Florida, so I sold that business and started another pet grooming salon in Plant City just outside of Tampa. After several years in the grooming business, I became burnt-out and sold out when I was offered a position with a major telecommunications company in Tampa as a Line Cost Analyst. After 10 years in that business, I was laid off in 2006. Being older now, it was hard to find another telcom job so I went back into the pet grooming business.
I currently live in Phoenix, AZ with my partner of 11 years. We have 5 dogs and 8 cats and I still own and operate a pet grooming salon. We travel as much as we can: to Las Vegas and Hawaii mostly.
