I am retired on 100% service-connected VA Disability Compensation.

I am a multiple Purple Heart veteran of an 18-month combat tour in Vietnam as a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division and a Green Beret with the 5th Special Forces Group. When I returned home, I entered police work and rose thorough the ranks from a uniformed patrol officer with the City of Birmingham to finally serve as a Special Agent with the U.S. Treasury Department. I hold a BS in Accounting and Finance, an MA in Military History, and have completed postgraduate academic work toward my doctorate at the University of Alabama and George Washington University in Washington, DC. I now resides in Foley, Alabama, on the Gulf Coast, and can be reached at:
I am a Life Member of the Special Forces Association, the VFW, the DAV, the MOPH, and the American Legion. I also belong to the Association of Military Writers.
