INFORMATION
Born in upstate New York. Raised in Pennsylvania. Joined the military after high school. Retired from the Marines in 2002. Now owns and operates a successful party rental company.

Hooked up (married) with my high school sweetheart to make a go of life. With all life's ups and downs, she is still very much and will always be my 'sweetheart'.
Funny how God knows that stuff. (like who I needed to be partnered with)

    michaelcahill: Good ideas, Van. We should follow up. Congrats! :))

    Van: Thanks. Congrats for the win Mike. I agree we should follow up and get something together to propose for action (if that's what the general consensus feels we need). If the majority are happy with the way things are, well then that's fine too. I'm easy to get along with:)

    RFL: Congrats, Van! So glad to be in your company :). Count me in if you are considering follow-up. My idea is to extract all the common themes from our submissions to this contest, all sign off on them, and then send to FanStory. What do you think?
