I put together project teams for public or private sector entities. This type work is in part, an outgrowth of what we learned while playing football and other sports. I was a starter on a US Navy Championship football team at NAS Miramar, of  “Top Gun,” movie fame. This was my primary base from which we deployed to Vietnam more than once.   See if you can find me in the attached photo. (VFP-63). All the guys on the team deployed to Vietnam in 1968 and again later.Team_Flag Football -EdV

Kerry and I have lasting memories of our lovely Caribbean cruises and our interesting cruise to the Mexican Rivera. I have circumnavigated the globe twice on board military vessels, but it’s truly more fun when your at sea voyage is blessed by being in the company of a beautiful woman.
