Enlisted in the Corps in ’58. From P.I. to Cherry Point for Airborne R/O School, then to Quantico where I flew R4D-8s and AD-5s—crashed at Dyess AFB in R4D-8 #17248. Had the honor of crewing on a flight carrying Chesty Puller to a meeting. He ignored the officers and chatted with the crew chief and me. Discharged in ‘62 and operated hardware store until ’87, then dug clams on Long Island for a living. Received an M.A. in English (1998) from Queens College; mixed clamming with freelance editing. Moved to Florida in ’04. Still editing American Journal of Philology and assisting on a project designed to raise public awareness regarding the immediate dangers inherent to greenhouse gas emissions. Ride my motorcycle and bicycle and bitch about most things. Semper Fi.
