“Greetings from the U.S. Coast Guard” *

c. May 2009


FMA LOG winter 2010Thank you for the message of 23 May '09. The V-5 Program has had a most important affect on my life. I was in Class of 16-47, but did not complete flight training. I spent 45 years on the Police Force of Miami/Dade Florida and was Chief of Police of Sanibel, Florida.

The start with the Navy certainly helped. I now have four degrees and als0 completed 24 years Regular Navy and active Reserve duty in the US Coast Guard. I retired at age 60 as a Captain (0-6) with Officer Designators of Port Security & Intelligence, among others.

I congratulate you Roy as our Executive Director. The FMA continues to be very important to me.
