About The Author

About Author

I am a School License Marine Engineering Warrant Officer who served as a Chief Engineer onboard an Army Vessel at Fort Eustis, Virginia, and two tours in Vietnam.
I retired from the Army as a Deepsea Master Diver, having served at Fort Eustis, Virginia, Inchon Korea, Goose Bay, Labrador, and Sander-Strom, Greenland. “Reflection on Years Gone By” is being published because I want future generations to see the struggles I encountered during my life journey.
This book will provide a brief history of how I have perceived the world in eighty-nine years of life. It is a look into my family history that hopefully will be cherished for many years in the future. If any portion of the book brings some joy or revelation to you, I will be thankful.
