BRIEF INTRO

I am the one and only OC3, the Palindrome, the Big Bald Red-Bearded Beast. I'm working on my auto-biography and when it is done, it will be available here. When I created the idea of writing the book, I bit way more off than I could chew. It's a longer process than I anticipated. I'm making progress and I'll will let you know when I complete it.

WHERE I'M FROM

I'm a country boy from the east hills of Appalachia in a small town called Radford, VA. My Grandfather had a farm and I grew up riding horses, bailing hay, and herding cattle. I spent some time in Charlotte, NC then moved to Arlington, VA. I graduated from Wakefield High School. 

MILITARY and EDUCATION

I joined the Army right after high school. I spent 10 years in the Army and made it to the rank of Sergeant First Class. 

I ended my service in the Army, moved to Daytona Beach, FL and enrolled into Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I graduated after 2.5 years and joined the Navy to become an Officer and go to Flight School. I earned my Wings of Gold and moved to Jacksonville, FL. 

 

I retired after 22 years in 2014.
