book is a discussion of evolving challenges played against a backdrop
of exciting adventures that made up my life. While growing up
in Southern Illinois, and later while serving in the U.S. military
and working in the corporate world. I visited 35 countries on
five continents; yet, I have never been anywhere I would rather
live than right here in the United States. In the military, my
buddies and I often talked about “home,” which was
not the place from which we enlisted. It was anywhere in the U.S.
As soon as we stepped down off an aircraft onto the tarmac anywhere
in the continental United States, we were home. The most important
influences in my life were my God, my wife and my mother, combined
with outside influences from the military and corporate environments.
This book explains how all of these factors combined to make me
who I am.
