I was born March 12, 1974 at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. At the time my farther was a Chief Warrant officer Four in the U.S. Marine Corps. Later on that year we moved to Greece, than two years later Hawaii where my brother Alex was born in 1976. After living in Hawaii my farther was sent to Okinawa Japan where I have my first memories as a child. We lived there for one year until my farther was reassigned to MCAS El Toro California, We first lived in Temple City California where I went to kindergarten to 2nd grade, then we moved to Westminster California. I started Elementary school at Murdy Elementary than Junior High at Mc Graven JHS. During that time my sister was born in 1986. Later we decided California wasn't the place for us, so in 1988 we decided to move to League City Texas where I started High School at Clear Creek High. I made most of my best friends there, and have some of the best memories. I lived there till 1995 when I got the moving bug again and decided to join the Marine Corps. I enlisted October 2nd 1995.
