Ten years since my last update.  A lot of changes.  I contined as a Research Fellow at LMI in McLean until I retired for good in 2014.  (Retired from NIH in 2005)  The last 4 years were spent as an acquisition advisor the Bureau of African Affairs in the State Department.  One of its critical missions was to supply and train Africans to support UN peacekeeping efforts on the continent.  "African solutions for African problems" was our de facto motto.  Traveled to Ghana, Togo, Uganda and Burundi.

It was a nice place to finish my career and a worthwhile undertaking, I thought.

I lost my younger brother Jeff to esophageal and liver cancer in 2015.  It was pretty brutal.  Diagnosed in April.  Dead by August.  He was inurned at Arlington National Cemetery on December 1 with full miltary honors.  He flew helicopters in Viet Nam, was shot down twice and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal for Valor.  He was a good dude and we became very close after we got past that sibling rivalry crap of our high school days.  I miss him and I love him.

My wife, Ann, got offered her dream job (VP of Alumni Affairs) at her beloved Alma Mater, the College of Charleston.  We relocated here in November and just closed on a house a couple of days ago a few blocks from campus.

Getting 2 cars, 2 dogs and the motorcycle down here was a challenge.  Our furniture is still in storage in DC but hopefully will join us at the end of the month.  It's been a hectic few months but Charleston should prove to be a interesting new world.  Making the switch from the Washington Nationals to the Charleston River Dogs may prove to be biggest challenge.

Getting back up to DC for the reunion is unlikely but I wish you all the very best.

Hi fellow Spartans!(what's this Wildcat crap?) If you are reading this, congratulations on your longevity. Lots of those folks you read about in the obits were born after us.Getting old really sucks,but beats the current alternative.      My situation has barely budged in the last ten years. Still have the same wife, Sandy, live in the same house in Hanover, Pa., have the same job hauling livestock feed from mill to farm, ride the same motorcycle ('03 Kawasaki Concours w/190,000 mi.), have the same three kids who have grown and moved out, except for the one who moved back in. Things did get somewhat involved after I received that bite from a werewolf and had to waste a lot of my throttle twisting time doing battle with the vampire menace. At least I don't have to deal with the zombies because, as I'm sure you know, that whole thing is a bunch of hooey.       Looking forward to seeing you at the 50th.

I went to U of MD for one year and got lost in the crowds.  I had to commute due to living too close to the campus and I just never got into the scene, other than the ball games! After year 1, I enrolled in an Accounting university that was in DC. It has since been absorbed by GWU, so I am a GWU grad complete with diploma.  Upon graduating in 1971, I went to work in Public Accounting, in Arlington, VA. That was a great job with wonderful benefits, because I met my husband (of 41 years now) while at that job. I stayed there 7 years until I decided I did not want to do public accounting and tax work for the rest of my life.

 

In 1979, Bob and I welcomed Ryan. Bob had moved on to Director of Finance at the Fairfax County Water Authority, where he stayed for the rest of his job career. We had a nice house in Arlington VA which we stayed at for 28 years. Bob’s career was an example of finding a job with a major company and stay there until you are ready to retire. My career was an example of having half a dozen jobs, moving on for advancement. I retired in 1998; Bob retired in 2002.  

 

We built a house and moved to Bethany Beach in 2002 and are still there in the warmer months. We have become snowbirds and stay in Sarasota for late December to late April each year. Ryan got married last year and he and his wife live in DC for now. I was sorry not to be able to make the reunion.

After WJ, I went to what was then Wheeling College and is now Wheeling Jesuit University. I started out in accounting and never chnged. I glad I did not since I went on to make it my profession. After graduation I was facing the draft whith visions of being a tunel rat. This led me to "voluntee" for extra year for a Army MOS of computer operator. As luck would have it, I spent my entire Army service right here in the Washington Avre at various Army post.
Upon leaving the Army, I spent the next 23 years with United Broadcasting Company which among other media properties owned WINX. While at UBC, I completed an MBA at American University using my GI benefits. Shortly there after, I married my wife Arlene. With the consolidation of the broadcasting industry, I was invited by a friend to join the banking industry. Talk about consolidation in an industry, don't burn you bridges in banking because you will need your friends to find you next job. I worked for 5 banks during the next 15 year of my career. After which I retired for the first time. It was short lived. When Christmas came, my wife asked me to give her a Christmas presant and go back to work. I worked for the next 5 years with an insurance agency.
Now retired for a second time, we are expecting two grand children later this year. Naturally, we are filled with great expectations.
