USS BEALE DD-DDE 471 and proud of it
I was born November 11, 1941, enlisted in US Navy after high school, spent 3 years 3 months and 29 days on sea duty, was aboard USS Beale DD-DDE-471 (like everyone else was on the best destroyer in the fleet), and left the Navy in 1994 (BIG ERROR).
I married Kathleen Riley of Blanchard, Michigan, on June 6, 1995 (BEST THING I EVER DID). Kathy has given me three of the best kids a guy could ever want - Mike 32, Steve 28, and Jennifer 24. We now reside in Franklin Grove, Illinois.
I am a Postal Worker in Oregon, Illinois, and a Bulls and Bears fan. I now collect ships tee-shirts, ship's crests, and hats. I also build model ships with over 400 plastic models, and have 15 ships in 1/96 scale running from four feet to six feet long.
Memberships I have include:
  • American Legion Post 497-Franklin Grove, Illinois
  • VFW, Dixon, Illinois
  • Tin Can Sailors
  • De Sailors
