I am a proud four year veteran 1962 through 1966 vintage. I served in Asia and Europe and hold an FAA Airframe and Power Plant certification license. My current position is a certified aircraft inspector for American Airlines, a major commercial airlines in New York. I served with American from July 1966 through Jan 31, 2011, completing 44.5 proud years. American Airlines lost two aircraft on Sept 11, 2001. Nereid, is my first novel.
