Retired Army officer of the Cold War era. Spent four leisurely years as A Special Forces officer in Vietnam, and visited many beautiful and wonderful locales in Latin America, Africa and the SW Pacific area in the same capacity.

Racquetball is (was) my passion until physical infirmities made it just too difficult to play. Am now a bicycle meanderer along rural Maryland roads and the C&O canal. Am a writer and an author; more books are under pen. I can't tolerate rude people and become dangerous in the presence of those who harm children, women and defenseless animals.

Personally, I have witnessed (and became somewhat involved in) most of the  governmental and political travesties | Read More »
