As a U.S. Marine Vietnam combat veteran followed by serving as a D.C. Metro Police Officer, I had committed early in life to follow the example of St. Michael the Archangel and serve as a protector and defender with Christ by my side at all times. I chose to battle the evil of satan and expose his lies, no matter the personal cost. Today, as a father and grandfather, I am honored to continue to serve and confront satan with the sword and shield of the love and mercy of Christ.
