Spent 22 years in the Airforce... almost all overseas in Germany, Greece, and England as an Intelligence Analyst. Retired in 1994. Went to work at Universal studios Florida as a manager of operations for 5 years. Assisted in designing and opening Islands of Adventure and City Walk. Then worked for Walmart for 8 years as Personnel Manager. Went back to the government as Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) Security Analyst in 2008 and moved from Florida to Washington DC. I retired on Sept 1, 2019 and am now an official Snowbird, living in Virginia during the summer and Florida in the winter. I was married for 35 years to a wonderful woman I met in Athens Greece. She went home to be with the Lord in November 2011 after a brief illness with Pancreatic Cancer.

School Story:

Actually happened a long time after graduating and involved Mr Schlattman. My first born daughter, Kali was two and was a rather slow learner (she still hadn't really learned to speak). I visited the school one day to see Mr S. I had a special relationship with him as he taught my Father, taught me, and taught my sisters. Quite a career. When I asked him when he was going to retire, he said only after he taught my children. Then he cancelled his morning classes, sat down with my daughter and for the next 3 hours sat with her and taught her to say her first ..."hippopotomus". The glow of his eyes and huge smile is a memory I'll never forget. The next year, true to his word, he retired. I miss you Mr S.
