My XYL is Denise and we live 30 miles south of Atlanta in Henry County, GA. Graduated from Drexel University, Philadelphia in 1969/80 - BSIE/MBA. Former BSA Assistant Scout Master for 10 years. Currently retired after 40+ years in Engineering, Consulting, Logistics and Distribution. 

Both sons are Eagle Scouts, Bronze Palm level, 2nd level Order of the Arrow. Oldest son Matt is also a very rare Eagle Ranger. Matt is a Lt. Commander in the Navy Reserves - '06 USNA. He was a helo pilot in ASR (Antisubmarine and Rescue) flying SH-60Bs. After three deployments in 3 years he was then assigned to Naval Operations at the Pentagon in W., DC.  He is now working for a military assessment company in Arlington, VA.  My youngest son Chris ('08 GA Tech) is a Captain Army Field Artillery officer previously deployed in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan.  He is now stationed at Fort Hood, TX - assigned to the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Cavalry Division as an Electronic Warfare officer and about to be deployed to SK this year.

I have achieved my goal of confirming WAC, WAS, DXCC (217 confirmed), and the VUCC awards. (I did have 49 states in 1970, but then after college I had other interests including work, got married, raised a family and now I started all over again.).

I have also received my 6M WAS Award - #1390 and confirmed 273 6M grids in the past seven years. I am also working on my WAZ Award and have only one more Zone to go (#23). Recently, achieved my CQ WPX Award with a North American endorsement.
