Retired at age 43 due to an in the line of duty injury. Rediscovered ham radio in early 03 that and support from my family helped me through the first few difficult years. I have traveled the world sitting in my chair as I talk with many different and various peoples through out the world. I can talk to someone, learn about their particular part of the world, and when I tell folks that I am a 2 hour ride from Disney World, and invariably will hear..Oh..I've been there! Still wish I could or would be allowed even some part time work, but my condition now isn't so great, I will in ten years probably less..a lot less loose the ability to walk. Still wouldn't change a thing about my life, I chose my profession, knowing it was high risk. I have a lot to be grateful for, and that is what keeps me going.
Vero Beach, Florida, about an hour and a half south of Cape Canaveral
Amateur radio, otherwise known as ham radio. Computers, reading, surfing the web and..oh yea..vaping
