I am a veteran of fourteen years active duty service in the U.S. Army, with training and duty assignments in Infantry, Military Police, Personnel, troop-community relations, Command Information, Journalism (Public Affairs) and special projects.  Several of my assignments involved working with personnel from the USAF, USN and USMC, so I have first-hand knowledge of those branches as well.  Following my active duty military service, I enlisted in the Army Reserves and also became a full-time Federal civil servant. My final assignment was as a GM-14, chief of public affairs. Through the years I taught part-time at three colleges, including the University of Alaska, in subjects ranging from criminal justice to communications to history.

 

I spent many years training in martial arts and teaching. I was certified as a master by the founder of Moo Duk Kwan (tang soo do), Hwang Kee, and taught in Korea for several years.  I also was certified as a master in Taekwondo.  During this time, I taught "history of martial arts" courses for a couple of colleges, and this opportunity allowed me to become familiar with almost all the major styles.  Little did I realize as a very young man how useful it would prove years late to be conversant with Japanese, Korean and Chinese calligraphy.
