I joined the US Army Security Agency for four years and was able to travel to many foreign countries, 33 in all. I lived for three years in Asmara, Eritrea. Traveled extensively throughout Africa, the Middleast & Europe. After I got out of the Army, I was able to take my time returning home traveling throughout Europe. I knew that in later years that I might not be able to do this, so I took the time and opportunity to travel everywhere possible. My experiences included visits in Kenya and Tanzania on safaris to scuba diving in the Red Sea and Aegean. Some of my adventures have taken me from seaports of Mombasa, Massawa to Piraeus. I have explored Axum, Ethiopia in search of the Ark of the Covenant, to the lost of city of Petra in Jordan, and to where Helios once stood on the island of Rhodes. Europass railway opened the way to many historic cities and various cultures while traveling throughout Europe to Scandanavia, the United Kingdom and Scotland. After I returned home from Scotland, I took on another adventure that employed me working in the Arctic on the DEWline (Distant Early Warning) for the USAF. I spent nineteen years working at many remote sites in the Arctic from Iceland, Greenland, Baffin Island, NWT of Canada to the North Slope of Alaska. I moved home to the Bremerton area in 1990 and later returned to Europe in early 2000, where I met my future wife Olga and her daughter in Kiev, Ukraine. We married in December, and now make our home here on Kitsap Lake in Bremerton with four cats. We've occasionally returned to Kiev and spent our vacation exploring the Crimean Penninsula from Sevastopol to Yalta and Balaklava on the Black Sea.
