About Me:
I am a 45 year old Male who is has been married for the past 19 years and have 3 kids all girls. I am origionally from Ky and now in SC and have been all over the world during peace time and war. I enjoy sports and outdoor activties espically football, rugby, camping, fishing, and beaches. I enjoy good movies.

My girls are growing up fast and my oldest is heading off to college at Galluadet University, my middle daughter is wanting to drive and in High School and my youngest is still in middle school and very active in school.
Relationship Status:
Married
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I became part of my local volunteer program when I was a teenager back home, so that I could do more for our small town. After high school I joined the Marine Corps where I continued my emergency services career as an Aircraft Rescue firefighter.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The feeling of accomplishment for my accomplishments and those I have helped over the years
Top Issues Facing Responders:
COMPLACIENCY - Its just a fire and its the same all the time. Its just a medical call what will happen. The aircraft will never crash in our area it always happens on the runway. Until April 22 that last statement was true but see I told everyone it would happen one day
