I am a retired Air Force veteran. I served as a Special Purpose vehicle mechanic. I am a conservative American who is strongly opposed to government interference in daily lives. I believe that as a survivor of a family that was poor and falling apart with absentee parents, drinking and poor role models that if I can suceed through hard work and determination so can anyone else. I am a strong supporter of our military heroes, past and future who put or are putting their lives on the line to give me the right to vocalize my opposition to government actions such as on this blog. As such I support any and all efforts to support veterans injured in support of this country and any effort to ease the transistion of servicemembers trying to enter the civilian workforce. I would encourage people to support those employers who go out of their way to utilize the skills of veterans. I am also a great supporter of institutions that try and help those in need such as the American Red Cross, the ASPCA, and The Humane Society. I am still in the transition process myself and would like to finish my degree and teach American History.
