Tell us about yourself
Well, I spent 4 years in the Marines, traveled around the world once. Fought in the desert during Desert Storm, and got out as a Sergeant. I was accredited by the National Teachers Association as a Country/Western Partner and Line Dance Instructor in 1994. I worked for a short time in the Masonry Supply Business and then got on at the Postal Service in 1995, in South Carolina. I have transferred through the Postal Service across several states and I now live in Calhoun, MO and work in Clinton, MO about 12 miles away. I am divorced with three beautiful children, 2 girls and a boy , ages 12, 10, and 9. I am Boy Scouts of America Volunteer, the Den Leader of my Son's Webelo 1 Den, the Cub Master of the Pack, the Family Friends of Scouting Lone Bear District Chairman, VFW Dept of Missouri Scouting Team Member, Honor Guard Member, Commander of the VFW MO's 6th District 2011-2012. That's my life in a nutshell.

Great profile! We have a bit in common. I was Navy, Fifteen years a Scoutmaster. Only Four  made it to Star. My training must have been more severe. However, of the four - they became Police Chief; Fire Dept., Chief; Rotarians & Founders of the Boy's Club in my town.
Willingly will call you friend!

Great meeting last night Rick. Congratulations on having such an active, committed membership. You appear to be the main driving force behind most of the activities. The report was on its way before we left Clinton. I have a scanner here at home and will start using it......ddduuuuuuuhhhhh, Jake
