Happy Thursday, Facebook Family!
This week marks the 40th anniversary of when I enlisted in the U.S. Navy. While there are not many days that I don't fondly think of the friends and skills I acquired while proudly serving our nation in uniform, I have to say the 40 year mark snuck up on me a bit.
In that time I have gone from being a kid in a boy's home in St. Louis, unsure about my future, to a proud U.S. Navy veteran and a 24 year Air Traffic Controller at Lambert Airport. I have also gone on to serve 3 terms as a Bridgeton City Councilmember and I'm a second-term State Representative in the Missouri House.
I would like to think the brave men and women who put so much into training me in the Navy would be proud of my record of service.
While my family and I quietly acknowledge this anniversary, I would like to invite you to follow along by inviting your friends and family to like our page on Facebook. We would love to hear your service stories - both military and civilian, celebrate your anniversaries with you, and continue this important conversation on how we make Missouri the best possible place to live, work and raise a family. ...
