Discovered OBC surfing the web one night in 1997 while working in Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territories and have enjoyed the ride immensely ever since. Terrific group of friends. I retired from the U.S. Navy in 1993 after a 29 year career spent mostly in submarines. I lived in the Philippines for almost 30 years until moving to Las Vegas in 2007. I spend my time with my family, volunteering with military organizations and helping military retirees and their families with benefits questions and issues. Play golf as much as I can.
