Just a country boy born and raised in Weeksville, North Carolina, who is proud of his military and southern heritage. My great, great, great grandfather fought and survived as a Confederate Army Sergeant during the War Between the States, otherwise known as the Civil War (1861-1865).
My father fought in the Army during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. My son has served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. Marine Corps soldier and is still serving in this capacity.
I honorably retired from the U.S. Navy as a Submarine Independent Duty Hospital Corpsman "SUBDOC", after 20 years of service.
As a dedication and honor to my GGG grandfather I joined to support the Sons of Confederate Veterans for his honorable service in a war that killed more soldiers than all the wars combined in our Nation's history.
Thanks to all VETERANS who have and are currently serving in our military forces!
