I have often met with happiness after some imprudent step which ought to have brought ruin upon me, and although passing a vote of censure upon myself I would thank God for his mercy.This is my game casino online!

About Me

Retired Facilities Engineer.  I am now 63 (how the hell did that happen?) I have three sons and four grandchildren and a Grand Dog.  My wife Martha and I have been married for 21 years now and she is my best friend and the love of my life.

In the year 2000 I started having health issues and subsequently went to the VA for help.  I was diagnosed with a host of health issues all of which are attributed to Agent Orange exposure.  

I am now on disability and retired but still manage to ride a dirt bike pretty well.

About Me

  I am a veteran of the 3rd platoon - B-4-12 of the 199th LIB -  from January to June 1968 as 11B Infantryman.  - Got a Purple Heart on May 9 1968. Same day there was only 15 survivors of this company. Never forgot  May 7,8,9 1968 three days and nights no sleep and continuous fighting, shooting and bombing.  I killed 20 NVA's and Budda Monks in 3 days. Lucky I made it. I believe in God a lot better since then. But I finally made retirement in Florida. Now I battle with the Veterans Administratiion for more compensation and benifits. If anybody wants to get in touch with me go ahead and drop an Email.
