Story
Introduction
Born in California. Dad was a Canuck and Mom is a Yank. We celebrate Thanksgiving twice each year at our house. If you're curious why, just ask. Graduated from Edwin Denby Technical High School in Detroit in 1977. First job was with the Detroit Fire Department. Laid-off prior to being there one year. Bounced around looking for work and trying to support a family. Joined the Army in 1987 and flew helicopters until 2000 when I retired , some combat missions but nothing I can or want to write about. Laid-off a second time from the Detroit Fire Department (won't be a third time). My last duty station was in Hampton Roads VA and we decided to stay because my wife grew up at Ft Lee VA, just south of Richmond VA,  so this is home for her. I'm returning to the Fire Service.  We have four kids. The oldest is a firefighter in the military currently stationed at Grafenwoehr AAF in Bavaria, Germany, next is my oldest girl is attanding Old Dominion University to study Graphic Arts. Next daughter has an interest in entomology while the youngest is also interested in Veterinarian Medicine. I come from a long line of public servants, mainly in the Fire Service. I had many relatives that fought fires during the London Blitz caused by the attacks by Nazi Germany. Father's side of the family came from Aberdeen (Scotland) and settled in Northern Ontario around North Bay, Timmons and Sudbury. For those in the Fire Service, education is never ending. Each day is a training day, whether or not you’re in the firehouse. I’m finishing my AAS in Fire Science at Tidewater Community College at the Virginia Beach VA campus this semester and currently a Junior at UMUC, working on my BS in Fire Science.
