I was born in 1953 and remember all those television programs as well. I've always had an interest in history in general and military history in particular. I grew up out west in Arizona. My great-granddad was a cav soldier serving with Gen. Miles in Arizona during the Indian Wars and was in the party that "escorted" Geronimo out of Arizona. My great-granddad served at Fort Huachuca and nearly 100 years later, I followed in his footsteps there for my tour of duty.

I now work for the Florida Park Service at Fort Taylor, Fl. We host a reenactment every Feb and so it just seemed natural to don the Federal blue and man the 10-inch Rodman seacoast cannon we have set up in our casemate. Our unit is one of the few in the nation to do heavy artillery drill. Our unit also has a 3-inch ordnance rifle w/limber that we take to reenactments around the state.
