Jarhead has arrived
« on: April 12, 2007, 05:13:58 am »
Howdy Folks!  Getting Registered for this site is long overdue.  I am the Membership Secretary for GLFWDA (Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association).  Now, I must confess right up front that it will take me abit to settle in and check out what this site has to offer (I am a little slow now).  Right now I am thankful there is only 24 hours in a day, so I can start over where I left off.  But truly I digress, just wanted to introduce myself and say Howdy Folks!  :o

Yes, I retired February 1996 after 22 years which doesn't include a break in service as I wondered lost for a few years.

Once a Marine, Always a Marine!

SEMPER FI!

Bob

Again welcome to United. 
Thanks for your service to our great country.

I have 23 years in the Navy as of this month.
Will most likely retire next year about this time. 

Working on working for our sport when I retire to help keep trails open.

Thanks

Thank you as well!

I wish you well you in your search for a job that will help keep our sport alive.

I have my hand in a number of things to keep myself busy:
After raisning our seven childern we got into Foster Care.  We currently have a 2 year old boy and his 4 year old brother; plus a 6 year old girl and her 7 year old brother we are in the process of adopting.  Having the grandchildren come visit was/is cool, but we missed having kids around full time.  (We currently have 9 grandchildren.)
GLFWDA Membership Secretary
The Hummer/Club, Inc Board of Director CFO
HOPE (Hummer Owners Prepared for Emergencies) Certified Volunteer
Genesee/Lapeer and Livingston County Hummer HOPE Volunteer
Genesee/Lapeer DAT (Disaster Action Team) Volunteer
Genesee/Lapeer AFES (Armed Forces Emergency Services) Volunteer

Your job in the Military prepares you to multi-task... ;)

Bob:

Sounds like you lead a full and rewarding life!

Have you considered writing an article about your volunteer activities???

That is a great opprotunity to spread the word about community service involvement of recreationists.

The short answer is no.  With the idea being said I will have to see if I couldn't put something together that others may not be aware of just how much they can help their Local Community or even on a National Level.
