It appears that I have been somehow remiss in my member duties. I did not introduce myself. Well that is easily remedied. Please excuse the
length as I tend to ramble on. Here goes.
My name is troylawson. I live in Williamston, MI. I own a 1991 Dodge Dynasty. I work in the pharmaceutical industry. I enjoy cycling, running,
computing, gameplaying, photography, cooking only to eat, writing, reading, cinema, playing dvds, cd, and the like, traveling kind of like you guys. I
am an ex-smoker and ex-drinker(8 and 7 years now respectively).
I am a U.S. Navy Veteran, spending 8 years and stationed at Camp Pendleton, north of San Diego, did a 6 mo. deployment to Okinawa, Camp Fuji,
Japan, 2 weeks in S. Korea, during my year with the Marines(Oooh Raaah! Get some!). I then PCSed to NavHosp Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for over 2 years all
after 8 months of initial training. The remaining time I was in the Navy Reserves. After all that I was presented with an Honorable Discharge from the
Department of the Navy(suitable for framing).
I was born in San Diego, CA in 01/62. I graduated H.S. and Jr. College in San Diego with a diploma and A.S. degree respectively. I went to
college in Iowa for 1.5-2 years, yet did not graduate. I then went back to San Diego to work and was on and off unemployment for about 3 years till I
came to MI and worked a job for 4 years. I started a new job about a year and a half ago in the pharmaceutical industry and that brings me up to
I do have an idea of how the government is supposed to work, and I do care what happens to this country. I know someone with kids in the Army
currently serving in Afganistan and Iraq. He told me that the guys have to PAY for their meals. Ok MRE's everyone buys when you're in the field but
they also had to buy the food in the chow hall in the rear. Oh, that made me hot and I did something I have never done in the past, I wrote to my
congressman! To me that was not right, and last week I got word that my congressman recieved my letter and appreciated me taking the time to write.
More on that later, stay tuned. Anyway, there it is something for everyone! Hope I don't get flamed for my intro. And if you need help with your
computers shoot me a line and maybe we can solve it together if you don't mind some help from an old fart who's first computer was an 80286! Anyway,
thanks for having a look.
