I just looked at the pictures posted by Craig Funk, Randy Tomlin, and Mark Lewis of our 30th Class Reunion. I am so sorry I missed it, everyone looked great.

A brief synopsis of my life since leaving the hallowed halls of SAHS - I went to Penn State on the five year plan, graduating with a degree in Petroleum Engineering. That got me into the Army and after going to Basic Training and Officer Candidate School I was commissioned in 1984 in the Corps of Engineers. I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2006 so I could begin my second career. Im now working for Booz Allen Hamilton. While in the Army I did two tours in Germany, two in Korea, a year in Sarajevo, and was with the 101st Airborne during the first Gulf War. Ive got three daughters from my first marriage, (Kim b.1992, Kelly b.1994, and Maggie b.1997). In 2007 I re-married, my beautiful wife Ronda is a country girl and school teacher from Kentucky. It was a package deal so I also picked up two more kids! Allee b.1995 and Mac b.1998.

If you are ever in Kentucky in the Louisville area please plan on visiting, weve got lots of room. We still have our camp up on the hill behind town and most Julys we are up there for two weeks, and we always have cold beer for visitors.
