    It is a pleasure to have you visit my website. Hopefully, your review will result in a better understanding of the sacrifices associated with the freedoms and privileges of being a citizen in the greatest country in the world, the United States of America. Also, I hope you enjoy some thoughts on my speaking subjects. Again, Welcome!




It's the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press.

It's the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.

It's the soldier, not the politicians that ensures our right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

On October 3, 1993, Task Force Ranger was involved in "America's most savage raid since the Vietnam War." The book and the movie provide a riveting and realistic look at what soldiers can and will do for each other and their country.
