I retired from the 193rd Special Operations Wing in Nov 2002 and opened a web development company among other things. I started service as an Air National Guardsman Mar 1980. In 1983 I was offered an AGR (Active Duty with the Guard & Reserve) position and took it. This meant I could retire from Active Duty once I reached 20 years Active Service and collect my benefits right away. Traditional Guardsman need to wait till they reach age 60.
My career field was Aircrew Life Support. However, since we did not have a slot for a Search Escape Rescue & Evasion specialist much of my time was spent in that arena. Around 1990 I was tasked with assisting a programmer move DOS based Database files to this new thing called Windows. The program was successfully launched and I wrote the first Air Force Manual in Word using some basic HTML.
Upon retiring I started selling websites for a company and soon decided to open my own web development company. It grew into a successful business. When Donald Trump started backing Veterans and Tony Porta got on the Hannity show I decided soon after to develop this website. All that was around were some Social Media pages at the time.
I soon connected with various Veterans, some good, some bad, but who all helped in one way or another to connect people to me. With a short time to election there wasn’t time to properly vette everyone. Some were civilians who cared deeply about Veterans and others were Veterans with various backgrounds.
Today is a new day. Donald Trump is President-elect Trump. However, our job is not done. We must bring the country back by working to get our vetted Veterans into office.
Please understand I was a one man show on the web trying to support anyone and everyone to get Donald Trump elected. We made some mistakes along the way. You may think certain people who were self seeking to be people I endorsed. I did not and found them useful at the time for the purposes of getting Donald Trump into office.
I am not a signatory to any PAC or agreement of any other kind. My goal remains essentially the same. To promote worthy people and causes and defend the Constitution of the United States.
I have a business to run and I must now pay more attention to taking care of that than politics. However, we plan to keep this website active, look for worthy partners and assist where I can.
Two years before the election I started working on a plan to help Veterans by creating a for profit business giving 50% of our AGI (adjusted gross income) to worthy Veteran organizations. I plan to continue that now. I was presented with many ideas from our community of Veterans. Our services may expand to various areas serving Veterans.
Together we can move forward, cut through the bureaucratic bullshit and get to work. Together we can make money by selling a product and service that every business needs. We are not asking for donations but will earn the money we need. Keep your eye on these two websites. WeWhoServed.com and WeWhoServed.net.
