Born on May 21, 1952, Year of the Dragon, hence the nickname dragon52. It was tough growing up, being the oldest of 4; but it all turned out okay. Joined the military in 1970 and stayed on until I retired in Sept 2006. There are too many things to do, yet so little time. Half way through my life now and haven't seen the world yet; I will, see more in the second half than I ever dreamed of in the first.
