How I can help you

I spent a career (27 + years) in the U.S.ARMY. I served in Infantry units, specifically in Airborne and Special Assignments. These included two tours in SE Asia during the conflict, and five assignments in Europe.  I retired as a Colonel, and joined Martin Marietta which later became LOCKHEED MARTIN: For that corporation I was in Business Development, University Relations, Systems Planning, and Communications.  After 12 years the CEO suggested that I retire and become the Executive Director of the  NATIONAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY MEDALS FOUNDATION,  While there for 13 + years, I coordinated the Presidential awards of National Medals of Science and of Technology at the White House and  promoted nominations for both National Medals,  As the sole employee of the nonprofit, I was also the fundraiser.  I finally retired for the third time and volunteered for SCORE, where I mentor nonprofits only on a face-to-face basis, at the DC office on Mondays.
