My name is Robert, but I am known over a wide swath of the 'net as leftysergeant. I am a life-long resident of Washington State (with only a few breaks because the military thought I needed to be elsewhere.) I am a medically retired E-6, having served in the Air Force, 1966-70, AFSC 57150 and in the Army 1977-88, PMOS 94B30, Food Service Sergeant, SMOS 51M30, Fire Prrotection Sergeant. I also write some poetry. Look for me by the same name on YouTube.
