I originally created these Web pages in 1996 as an easy way to access my Bookmarks no matter where I was or what browser I was using. Over the years they have grown to the point that an explanation of their contents and my background are in order. I'm in my early 60's married with 4 children ranging in age from the Teens to the Thirties. After High School I spent 4 years in the US Navy and since 1969 have been an active member of the West Babylon, NY Volunteer Fire Department. Recently (summer of 2009) I completed the New York State EMT-BASIC certification course. In 1997 I received a Masters of Arts degree from Vermont College of Norwich University in History. While I enjoy all aspects of American History my main interests are in Fire Service History and Military History, particularly the American Revolution. In the near future I will be expanding these pages to give an overview of the Am. Rev. and links to more detail info on subject. I am a member of the following organizations.
· West Babylon Fire Dept
· Long Island Antique Fire Apparatus Assoc.
· U.S. Naval Institute
· Assult Craft Veterans Group
· Navy League of the United States
· Historic Naval Ships Assoc.
· Company of Military Historians
· American Historical Assoc.
· Associate Member The Smithsonian Institution
· Appalachian Moutain Club
· Life Member The History Channel Club
