Genuine PITA and Major Curmudgeon. I do not tolerate fools gladly. What a long, strange trip it's been... Graduated from Starpoint HS in 1975, and if you'd told me then what I'd be doing today, I wonder what drugs you'd been doing? Seven years in the Navy - 2MARDIV, USS Nimitz, NNMC Bethesda, NRMC Portsmouth, picked up an AS in Med Technology, National EMT registry and worked Pathology. Had a mid-life career change, total career change,went to Buff State and got an Electrical Engineering degree. Got caught in the mid-Eighties recession, got offered an AF Commission, picked up an MS in Management, worked a bunch of strange jobs, finally got annoyed enough to toss in my retirement papers in Sept 2003. Been teaching High school since then, AFJROTC. Two years in the Bronx, a year in South Philly, and a year in Buffalo. Personally rewarding, doesn't pay much, but I like giving kids options. So far, almost all of my cadets have been accepted to College, although a very small number went into the military, anyway, despite my efforts to get them to go to college..
