Veteran U.S. Coast Guard
CEO, Dunwoody Group
I left for Vietnam in October 1965, and returned to my wife Carol, and our first child, 4-month-old Lisa. During that year I spoke to Carol one time via something called radio telephone. Other than that, communication was by “snail mail,” which arrived in sporadic bunches, sometimes not for several weeks. As Commanding Officer of a Coast Guard gunboat patrolling the Vietnam Coast and the Mekong Delta, I was responsible for the lives of my 13-man crew. We were involved in multiple actions with the enemy, and proudly, never suffered any of our crew wounded or killed. I was and am proud to have served my country, which I fervently believe is the best in the world.

Veteran U.S. Army
MJCCA’s Director of Security
I joined the army in the late 70’s, attended training at Ft. Benning. After training, I was assigned to several different units during the course of my time in the Army. I attended other training that was available. I spent most of my service with units in Germany. I was able to travel to other countries and work with those countries’ military units. While stationed in Germany, I spent most of my “off time” with a German farming family at their farm, and participating in Volksmarches around the country. During the Volksmarches I would meet many people from different towns in Germany. I also had the opportunity to do a lot of snow skiing especially cross country skiing. I was so proud to have served my country through my time in the U.S. Army.
