After 9 years together, it appears my husband has found another direction in life, I don't know her name but he has moved along and we are divorced. Oh well, there is a lot to be said for the single life, I think.

Retired from 28.5 years Military/Federal Service, I've had a very active career, it started out slow, but picked up quickly and took off. Amazing what a little hard work will do. After the Marine Corps, I worked for a couple newspapers in advertising as I started college, then got picked up into Civil Service. I went from clerical to environmental and into the disposal aspect of logistics. I became Reutilization and Marketing Branch Chief at the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office in Molesworth, UK. After coming back to the US, was assigned to Augsburg, Germany as DRMO Chief for the southern part of Germany and was sent on temporary duty to Auctioneer School in Memphis TN. Amazingly, I didn't complete college until 3 years before retirement. Hard to do that when your always in the air flying around the world. I completed my career as a course director/professor at the US Army Logistics Management College, the Army's only accredited college. I figure I've been around the world about 9 times, stopping in the Orient several times, the Middle East during the bombing of the USS Cole, and flying to Los Angeles 2 days before the plane I was on was hijacked and went into the Pentagon; completing 2 tours in Europe. Since I felt my luck and my health might be running out, I decided to retire in 2006. During my 12 years assigned to the US Army Logistics Management College as an instructor, and then course director, I taught Disposal of US Government Excess and Surplus Property, Demilitarization, Army Performance Improvement Criteria (APIC) (which is Baldridge Criteria for Excellence); Franklin Covey Courses (7 Habits of Highly Successful People) etc., and customer service/leadership courses.

I had some amazing projects which were read in Congress and passed and resulted in honors from the countries of Germany and Brazil, and selection as Employee of the year for the European Region and I was inducted into the International Who's Who for Professionals in 1992.

I lost my son which has been devastating to me and so soon after the passing of my father in 2011; my mother in 2012 and my son in 2013.

School Story:

My school years were difficult for me. My home life was difficult and so strict, that making friends was useless. I made up for it as an adult though. LOL I left home right after graduation went into the Marine Corps which believe it or not, I found relaxing and refreshing.
