From the Region President

It is a privilege and honor to have been elected as the Sixth Region President.  My background is comprised of all parts of the Army, having served as an Enlisted Soldier for two years and attending Officer Candidate School, I then spent eight years in the California National Guard, serving as a technician for a couple of years, and the rest of a 30+ year career in the Army Reserve, including two mobilizations and a short tour in support of contingency operations.  I retired in 2001 having commanded at all levels thru Group Command (O6).  I had a 30 year career with the IBM Corporation and upon retiring from IBM in 2007, became a Department of Army contractor as a Employer Partnership Manager for the Army Reserve. Therefore, I feel I know the needs and challenges that each of our Army components face.  My goal is to make the Association of the United States Army relevant and pertinent within the Regular Army, Guard and Reserve, and the communities of retirees, DOD Civilians, family members and our corporate / sustaining members within Sixth Region.  I will communicate through and with the State and Chapter Presidents and want to keep the Sixth Region volunteer staff engaged with the same group - aimed at supporting their efforts in:  training, outreach, meetings, and with a big focus on membership.  I look forward to the challenges ahead and want to visit each chapter at one of their events in the near future. Please feel free to contact me with your needs, questions and ideas.
