I have actually posted several messages already but hadn't gotten around
to an into message till now.
I was a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Explorer as a youth earning my AOL and
Eagle (1961). My Council during my youth was Sullivan Trail Council, now
part of Five Rivers Council. I was SPL for the Council 1964 Jamboree Troop.
I worked Summer Camps during my High School & College years (Camps Seneca (5
Yr) Bedford (1 Yr.) & Gorton (1 Yr.).
I spent 24 years in the US Air Force and stayed involved as a volunteer
during most of that time with five Councils. I have served as Pack & Troop
Committee Chair, Asst. SM, Unit Commissioner, Roundtable Commissioner, ADC,
District Commissioner, Dist. Advancement Chair, Dist. Camping & Activities
Chair, and Dist Training Chair.
After retiring from the USAF I served 2 years as District Executive of
Tioughnioga District, Baden Powell Council Freeville, NY and then 2 years as
DE for Nathan Hale District, Connecticut Rivers Council, East Hartford, CT.
I greatly enjoyed my time as a DE in two great Districts, however the need to
reunite my family in one location caused me to resign from the profession in
I am now back in the now enlarged Baden Powell Council, Vestal NY over
the last year serving as Acting District Commissioner, ADC, and Co-Membership
Chair for Tioughnioga Dist.
