My Grandad arrived in the Colorado Springs area in 1888 after walking from Virginia to Missouri.
I have done ministry projects in all 50 states and 37 Foreign Countries.
My dad served 5 years through WWII before getting back home in Kansas and received 4 Purple Hearts.
I received a hand written note from Donald Trump thanking me for the prayers and almost a year of daily media blitzes.
I have taken the Big Game of Colorado with a Longbow, was Bowhunter of the Year and inducted into the Bowhunting Hall of Fame. I’m one of 200 people with almost all the 29 Species of North American Big Game Animals and almost died over a dozen times from airplane crashes, almost drowning in a glacial river, severe hypothermia, African terrorists, etc. Therefore, unlike many of the Cowgirls and Cocktail bartenders, it’s hard for me to get very excited about golf!
I am a book store and tack store junkie.
I am a Russian linguist and former Presidential Translator on the “Hot Line”. I traveled to the Soviet Union and Russia many times on business and otherwise. Apparently, I thought I wanted to be James Bond.
I like all animals – especially Cowboy, my Quarter Horse of 16 years – better than most people.
I married way over my head to Julie (Buckley) Whitney 36 years ago.
I am a Vietnam War veteran – and very proud of it.
