To preserve, protect and defend
the Constitution of the United States from
ALL Enemies, foreign and domestic.

I retired from the Army in 2010, with 30 years of service. The last 23 years in Special Forces, all 30 years on Jump Status.

I have had four Major Overseas deployments: 3 to Afghanistan and one to the Middle East in 1984, just after the bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Lebanon.

I have recently taken to writing a fictionalized account of my last Afghanistan tour in my book, "Say Good Night; My 2009 Adventures in Afghanistan." I was assigned to the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force - Afghanistan in 2003 and 2009.

I've been deployed with 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) (SFGA), and 7th SFGA and have served with the 12th and 20th Groups, as well as held assignments at US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), Fort Bragg, NC and US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), Macdill AFB, FL. These assignments provide me with a wealth of background and experience that enables me to bring you the most exciting tales inside the world of US Army Special Forces & Special Operations, Military Intelligence & Political Intrigue.

It's my goal to provide an insider's perspective to the reader through plain speaking vocabulary with vivid realism, clear dialog, riveting plot, and nerve racking suspense. And of course, in so doing, providing you, the Reader, the most vivid and realistic stories of Suspense, Espionage, Crime Drama and Historical Fiction. I hope you'll come back often. My last book launched on November 20, 2015.

With my sense of humor and my experience as a Police Office on the South Side of Chicago then as a Federal Agent in Detroit, I have a wealth-spring of insider experience that allows me to craft the most exciting stories coupled with great humor and even heartfelt emotions.  Hopefully, the sort of books that will make you want to stand up and cheer and feel proud to be an American.  Come back soon & often.
