Highlights were joining the Navy(1965-69); then, Frogman(UDT) training after boot camp, until an accident; sent on board the Flagship-Heavy Cruiser, USS Saint Paul(CA-73), passed the GED tests, and had three Combat tours to Viet Nam; where we were hit in battle in 1967, became "Top Gun of the Navy" in 1968, and received the Navy Unit Commendation, too. Afterwards, following my dream of Acting at VCU, earned a BFA in Theater Arts and Speech(1976). Many years later, I surrendered to my real Calling of Preaching, with a MA from The Criswell College, in Christian Leadership(1997); and a MDIV in Evangelism and Missions from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary(2001). Ministering to Special Education adults is the privilege the LORD allows me to serve HIM in!

School Story

A very fond memory was when we had the SCA Convention at TJ in 1960, where they adopted our Honor Code for the National Honor Society! WOW! What a Great Freshman introduction we had, huh?! Those Texas girls in their cowgirl outfits really were a sight for fourteen year old eyes! After travelling in over a dozen countries, and forty-four states through the years, as well as living in Virginia, California, and Arizona, the irony of being transferred to Texas in 1992 brought that memory back; since I never had thought about living here! Being from Richmond, Virginia has always been a bragging right for me; especially the fact that I went to Thomas Jefferson High School, there! Though I wasn't much to brag about, then, GOD has Blessed all of us in our Heritage, together! AGAPE!
