My background is solid, middle class American. Father of three and Grandfather of three.
I have three brothers and three sisters. MY father served in the U.S. Army for 27 years and Mom was a homemaker. My siblings are successful professionals, consisting of a Physician Assistant, a Construction Company owner, a Sales Rep, Business Owner, Teacher and a Lawyer. Oldest brother served in the US Air Force and my youngest brother served as a U.S. Army Jag. Our parents taught us the value of a dollar and how hard every person had to work for it, and I want to make sure you keep that hard what is truly yours.
I joined the U.S. Navy after graduation from Bartlett, Anchorage Alaska, and worked on my college degrees, (2X) while serving. The Navy taught me skills for which I am forever grateful. It also taught me
that I can succeed at anything if I work hard enough. I still have a strong desire to protect the People, the Constitution, the Law, and your individual rights.
When I enlisted, I took an oath to support, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Once I retired I gave up my uniform but did not give up my oath to support, and defend the Constitution.
First and foremost, I am a Patriot, and not a Politician! I know what it means to serve our country. I believe I am fully qualified to serve as a Representative. I am here to fight not just for our District but all Alaskans.
