I'm the oldest of three boys, and I grew up mostly in Tennessee but traveled around quite a bit in the southeast. After attending more than 20 schools along the way, I ended up in Lake Charles, Louisiana where I attended high school. I met a girl in eighth grade who over the next few years became my girlfriend. With wide eyes we began dreaming and planning our life. In the summer between our junior and senior years I asked her to marry me and she said yes! We went through the senior year engaged and at the end of that year, 1978, we were married at a beautiful traditional wedding full of family and friends. After a heart-shaped honeymoon in the Pocono Mountains, it was off to the military.
