I FINALLY GOT ALL MY PHOTOS IN, NOW I CAN TALK YOU MY FELLOW MONROVIANS. THIS GREAT WONDERFUL HIGH SCHOOL NOT ONLY CHANGED MY LIFE AND IT BASICALLY SAVED MY LIFE IN A WAY TOO. I WAS A BAD BOY GOING INTO THAT HIGH SCHOOL, A STREET KID TRYING TO BE A TOUGH GUY. THIS SCHOOL HAD SO MANY ATHLETIC PROGRAMS, I BECAME A PART OF 3 OF THEM. I WAS IN THE PHYSICAL FITNESS TEAM, THE TRACK TEAM, AND THE CROSS COUNTRY TEAM. I HAD SUCCESS IN THE PHYSICAL FITNESS TEAM. IN MY JUNIOR YEAR I PLACED 1ST IN THE CITY AND 2ND IN THE STATE IN THE REGINAL MARINES CORPS YOUTH PHYSICAL FITNESS CHAMPIONSHIP TORNAMENT. EVERY HIGH SCHOOL IN THE CITY AND LONG ISLAND THAT HAD THIS PROGRAM PARTICIPATED. IN MY SENIOR YEAR I PLACED 2ND IN THE CITY AND 2ND IN THE STATE. MY FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL MEMORIES WAS BEING INVOLVED WITH THOSE PROGRAMS. I DONT REMEMBER THE GIRLS. I HAD ONE OR TWO FLIRTS IN THE SCHOOL, THAT'S IT. I HAD A GIRL FRIEND OUT OF SCHOOL THOUGH. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL LIKE A NUT I DID THE MARINE CORPS FOR YEARS. WHILE IN THERE I SAVED SOME COLLEGE MONEY AND WHEN I GOT OUT I ENROLLED INTO THE ACADEMY OF ARONAUTICS. ANOTHER LIFE CHANGING MOMENT. I GRADUATED WITH AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE IN ALLIED AND GOT MY AIRCRAFT & POWERPLANT LICENSES. AFTER THAT I JOINED THE NAVY FOR 4 YEARS AND BECAME AN AIRCRAFT ELECTRONIC TECHNICIAN WITH THEM. I GOT MARRIED DURING THIS TIME AT THE AGE OF 27. WHEN I GOT OUT I WENT BACK TO THE ACADEMY OF AERONAUTICS AND DID ANOTHER 2 YEARS WITH THEM AND I GRADUATED WITH AN ASSOCIATE IN OCCUPATIONAL STUDIES AND GOT MY FCC LICENSE AND A RADAR ENDORSEMENT. FROM THEN ON I HAVE WORKED FOR A SERIES OF AIRLINES AS AN AIRCRAFT MECHANIC AND AS AN AVIONICS TECHNICIAN. I WORKED FOR BUTLER AVIATION, FLYING TIGERS, NEW YORK AIR, AND I'AM NOW CURRENTLY WORKING FOR CONTINENTAL AIRLINES. I QUICKLY MOVED UP THE RANKS FROM MECHANIC TO A LEAD TECHNICIAN, FOREMEN, MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR, TO NOW A MAINTENANCE MANAGER. MY JOB POST IS IN A TOWER WITH THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS. MY WIFE PASSED AWAY WHEN I WAS 50 YEARS OLD AND SHE LEFT ME ALONE WITH MY THEN 10 YEARS OLD DAUGHTER. I'AM NOW 57 YEARS OLD AND MY DAUGHTER IS 17 YEARS OLD. I'AM STILL A WIDOWER. I'AM APPRECIATING THE FREEDOM THAT I HAVE NOW OF DOING WHATEVER I WANT TO DO WITHOUT SOMEBODY TELLING ME WHAT TO DO.
I'AM JUST LIVING NOW FOR MY DAUGHTER AND HER WELL BEING FOR NOW. THAT SHE FINDS HER PLACE IN SOCIETY SO THAT SHE CAN LIVE HER OWN LIFE WITHOUT ME. SHE'S A LITTLE BIT A SPECIAL ED CHILD. WELL MY FELLOW MONROVIANS, I JUST GAVE YOU MY STORY. THE END.
