I was going through some pictures the other day and I came across this


I invented that pose. I’m serious, that’s the pose I started in the tower that people all over the world do today. It makes you look all offical like.

A lot of people are surprised when I tell them that back in 97 – 00 I controlled every plane in the active ariforce fleet including both original stealth planes, AND Airforce One.

Someone told me they were surpsied I keep my hair shorter now then I did in the service. I use to get a hard time about my hair actually. Because it’s curly, it would touch my ears and they would make me cut it way before I felt I had too. At one point I was at the barber once a week!

I wasn’t allowed to shave it, because at the time skin head was considered to “fashionable” and we’re not allowed to do trends in the military.

From what I understand, bald for white men became acceptable about 2 years after I got out. I didn’t jump on that bandwagon until 2006. Almost 10 years from when this photo was taken.

There’s a lot time under the proverbial bridge since that photo, but don’t worry…


I haven’t changed that much.
