I entered the Navy and became a Naval Flight Officer in 1966. I served in Vietnam and was the Commanding Officer of a Navy Hawkeye (E-2) squadron at NAS Miramar, California. I retired in 1987 as a Captain. I am married with one daughter and two highly energetic grandchildren who live in Coronado, California. My wife recently retired as a Registered Nurse. My wife and I have been active in a local church in Escondido since 1977.
