I grew up enjoying the outdoors of western Washington State. I joined the Marine Corps Nov 1989 and was assigned to Dragon's Platoon, Wpns Co. 2nd Bn, 5th Marines.
After getting married, I left the Marine Corps after my first enlistment to start a family. I have 2 children who are the 2 most important things in my life.
My passion for the outdoors has passed down to my children, who enjoy time out in the woods as a family.
I found a peace of mind out in the woods, particularly up on Mt. St. Helens while chasing elk.
I hope I can pass on even a small portion of that peace to my brothers in arms.
