I am the son of a Vietnam Veteran who was in the Army for 20 years. I grew up in the military. I was a member of the 201st National Guard Unit for 7 years. My wife and I have been married for 38 years in August, we have two grown children. I have worked in the construction industry for nearly 30 years. I am, without a doubt, a firm believer in defending the Constitution of the United States and took an oath to such when I joined the National Guard.
