I started seriously writing in 1974 when I was accepted to enroll in Mrs. Kaiser’s journalism class during my senior year at Paola High School. I wrote articles, created editorial cartoons, and did whatever else was needed. Mrs. Kaiser gave me the end of year “award” for “diversity” of skills I brought to The Reporter publication and yearbook.
During my 22-year Regular Army active duty career, my writing skills continued to develop progressively and inherently through the nature of the various company organization administrative jobs and personnel leadership positions I held. I wrote everything from personnel evaluations for subordinates and staffing papers reviewed by flag officers; to concert program notes and press releases for respective public affairs office usages.
