INFORMATION
I spent the earlier years of my life with my mother at grandpa and grandma's little log cabin in the Smoky Mountains, as we had no place else to go. My father, a Green Beret, was killed in Korea in 1955, the year I was born. I never knew him.

I graduated from High School in 1975, and from Vanderbilt Law School in Nashville in 1980. I entered the U. S. Air Force in late 1980 with the goal of becoming a Joint Services Special Forces Combatant inspired by my older cousin, an Army Green Beret, who fought and died in Vietnam. There was a pocketful of assignments both State Side and Overseas to include "Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal School graduating in 1983, and "Joint Services Commando School" graduating in 1986.

After graduation I met a beautiful lady, we were married, and I became the luckiest man alive. I served in Operation Desert Storm (Iraq) in 1990-1991. After active duty in 2010, my wife and I relocated to the Panhandle of Florida. I began working with "Joint Services Commando Advisory Operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey", "American Legion" and "Disabled American Veteran Organizations", both Local and National, then "St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee."

I lost my wife in August 2016. She died of a blood clot in an artery. What a void! I'm presently co-authoring "Love Long Distance," "An Angel in the Meadow," "My Jigsaw Puzzle The Missing Piece," and "A Truck Load Of Hard Times," with Cathy Waldron, aka "Tootie" an awesome writer on FanStory. Meeting and writing with you is an honor! Best wishes wherever you are and God Bless.
Respectfully,
Bill
