I joined the Navy in 1984 shortly after high school. I grew up in Andalusia (area between northeast Philadelphia and Croydon, in lower Bucks County, PA), went to boot camp in Orlando, Florida and was then stationed in San Diego and Coronado for most of my 21 years. I retired in 2005 and moved to East Tennessee where I live now.
