A little about me.

I grew up in a small town in Missouri, along the banks of the Mississippi River. Herculaneum. It is named after a Roman town that was covered in volcanic ash. Now, Herculaneum is covered in lead dust and looks like a ghost town.

I left home at 17 and went in the United States Marine Corps. I ended up in a combat zone six months later, Operation Desert Storm. I remember when my parents signed the consent forms for me to enlist my mother said,, " I hope you don't end up in some desert fighting a war." Thanks Mom! I married young and divorced young. I have one son from that marriage. He is a great kid and a good athlete. He was the starting Quarterback and was All Conference, He has since graduated and will be attending college.
