1980-1983 I have many fond memories of the "Mighty Miss" and the shipmates I served with.

We have diversified the business into a small cattle ranch in South Texas, a joint venture partnership of a driving school in Southern California, the Owner of three full service car wash facilities and a recent venture into an advertising company. Together, we have two children; one completing Law School and our youngest headed to University this fall (2014). I directly attribute many of these successful business ventures to the lessons I learned while in the Navy and aboard the Mississippi !
