  1. A remarkable history of an ever inquisitive and adventurous mind. Wrapped in a “gloriously” beautiful package. Thank you for sharing!

  2. You have done a lot of writing and speaking so you are above my level as I finished USC in 65 and went into the USAF to Fly. I then left after doing my time flying back and forth between the West Coast and Southeast Asia to go to work for Continental Airlines as a Pilot in 1968. I stayed in the National Guard till 74.
