Comments:

Retired from Department of Army (Active Duty / Department Army Civilian) after 38 years of service (NH-IV/GS-14/15); now independent consultant

After Active Duty played in the "Good Time Rebellion" here in KC (we even played for a Southwest Prom in 1974, I think).

Later served in Washington, DC (twice), Atlanta, GA (twice), Alabama,
St. Louis, Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey, Panama, Australia, Korea, Honduras, El Salvador, and some other places I don't remember. Not bad for a former draftee.

Former President and current Ambassador for the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America and former President of the KC BMW Motorcycle Club.

Feature writer for: Army Logistician; Army Aviation; Aviation Digest; Big Bikes and Trikes; Big Motorcycles; and BMW Owners News

School Story:

I looks like everyone has a Mr. Greenstreet story, so here's mine:
I stopped by the school the week after graduation (different story, I'll tell you sometime). Mr. Greenstreet asked me how my job was going and I told him that I didn't have one. He pointed out that I was supposed to have had one since I was only going to classes in the morning. (uncomfortable pause) So then he asked if I wanted one. Answer: "Might as well." So he called his father-in-law and I started working that afternoon at Todeman Cab Co., driving their service truck.

Later graduated from Georgia Military College and Webster University. Post Grad work at: Army C&GS (Ft Leavenworth), Navy Post Graduate School (Presidio of Monterey), and Army Logistic Management College (Ft Lee, VA).

Grade School Attended:

A Louis Ruhl
