Fifty years since we graduated.  I still see the guy in the yearbook when I look in the mirror. I went to college, graduating from Florida State University in April 1965. 

After graduating I spent a year trying to find myself, including substitute teaching at Hicksville High School. How weird to be a substitute teacher there.

In April 1966 I went to work for the Federal government, starting in New York and in 1969 transferring to Washington, where I have spent the bulk of my life.  I spent most of my career at the Government Accountability Office (GAO), assessing the effectiveness of government programs. 

After almost 40 years as a fed I technically retired and have since worked for a defense contractor and currently for a congressional commission on wartime contracting.  I have had the good fortune to have traveled extensively for both work and pleasure, including most of the 50 states and many countries throughout Europe and the Middle East. 

I have been married for almost 30 years and in addition to my lovely wife have two lovely daughters, age 28 and 22.
