Upon graduation from High School, I went to Kearney State for awhile and then joined the Nebraska National Guard. I also got married for the first of three times. I moved to Hawaii to live with my Aunt, a Col. in the Air Force. She advised me to join the Army, because she thought the Air Force couldn't handle me. I spent 26 years in the Army, retiring as a SGM (E-9) the highest rank you can make enlisted. I have moved all over, Hawaii, Virginia, Texas, California, Louisiana, Colorado, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri in the USA. I have lived in Germany, Italy, Taiwan, Korea, and Viet Nam. Somehow during this time I got married two more times. I retired and presently live in New Boston Texas, home of Red River Army Depot. I went to work for a very large company from Holland, so this started the traveling again. I covered most of Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. I'm a 2 million miler with Delta and have a lot of American miles. I sold military spare parts. I also sold Hummers to Israel, Mexico, and Thailand. My family is hers, mine, and ours. Maurice is hers and 33 years old. He is an architect and lives in Phoenix, single with no kids. Janet is hers and is 29 years old. She is a RN and lives close to us and has 3 kids. James Jr. is mine, is 31 and works at Cooper Tire close to here and has 3 kids. Crystal, my other child lives in New York and has 3 kids. We had Vanessa, who is 25 and an E-7 in the Army. She lives in Germany and is on her way to Iraq. She has one son. Last but not least is Roberto. He is 23 and in his 3rd year of Dental School. If any of you guys have a daughter looking, this is the guy, Nebr blood in him. So 6 kids and 10 grandchildren. My wife is from Ethiopia and I have been married a long time this time - around 26 years. This will be my second reunion; the first one I attended was the 30th. I would like to thank everyone who is working so hard it on; I know what a job it is.
