My name is Anthony and to those who do not know me, a brief introduction is in order.
Let me tell you of some of my hobbies and if you have similar interests, we might become friends.
I love to fish. When I fish, I feel like a man. I feel like I could support my family with food at any time with nothing more than a fishing pole and a hook. Ocean, river, lake, creek or ravine, It dont matter.
Hiking. Hiking is an awesome way to explore the path less traveled and experience that feeling of being a kid again.
I love to grow organic vegetables and fruits, and am working on building a aquaponics system to further my experience in a horticultural passion I have had since I was a young man.
Induldging in movie marathons & tv series marathons is an opportunity that I have a hard time passing up, when appropriate.
One more passion that has been the most rewarding;
Advocating for my fellow brothers and sisters who have served our country.
When I see the dignity and validation returned to the veterans and their families I help, I get that warm feeling in my heart and that is all the thanks I need.
I am compelled to assist my brothers
and sisters at arms, to get the benefits they deserve, because I was
helped by someone doing the same.
I served in the Gulf War, and this duty has been a significant shift in my life.
They say that life is a continuous learning process, and the
time we have on this earth should be the most valuable asset we
As I age, I am realizing this more and more.
My careers have varied over the years and
some of the fields I chose to work in were the U.S. Navy, hotel
management, retail franchising, restaurant partnership, and now
I have committed that as long as my body allows me;
I will never cease to extend my service to all who need me.
