I served 26 years on active duty in the US Army and NC National Guard, traveling to 24 countries during my career (some fun, some NOT). I have worked at the Squad, Platoon and Company levels as a Forward Observer Team Chief and Fire Direction Chief, Platoon Sergeant, and First Sergeant up to the Corps level as a Senior Fire Support NCO. Other assignments have included Observer Controller at the National Training Center, Battalion and Brigade Operations and Training Sergeant, and Recruiter. After retirement, I worked two years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the Senior ROTC department, GO HEELS! I live in Clemmons with my wife and two daughters (and yellow lab). I have had a wonderful first year teaching at Forbush High School and have been welcomed to the school by the staff, faculty, and students. I truly love being part of the Forbush community!
