    Profile: Upon graduation in 1981, I joined the US Air Force. I served 9 years in the Air Force where I met and married my wife Janet and had two beautiful children Melanie and Michael now 27 and 22 years old respectively. Janet and I will celebrate 29 years of marriage this June 2013. I am currently the District Manager of the Marietta, GA Social Security office. I have lived in the south since 1986 but remain a Fall River native at heart. I have been around the world and there is no better food than right there in Fall River and the surounding areas. If someone can get a Class of 81 reunion going, I would love to catch-up with everyone and share our stories of where life has taken us.
