What have you and your family been doing since graduation:

I joined Maryland State Police in 1972. Retired as Lieutenant in 1997, went to Spring Hill Florida for a year and returned to Maryland as a State Police medevac helicopter pilot. I have 42 total years in the State Police with 35 years in the Aviation Command. I started as a paramedic in the Aviation Command in 1977 and became a pilot in 1983. The majority of our missions are medevacs to Shock Trauma Centers around the State. We also do search and rescue, hoisting, law enforcement, homeland securty, disaster assessment, etc. It has been an exciting and rewarding career. There is absolutely nothing more gratifying than being involved in saving someones life. For 11 years and currently I am the Director of Flight Operations. Lisa and I spend most of our free time loving our grandchildren. They are truly fantastic. In February 2015 we built a beautiful and large retirement home in Crystal River Florida and we go back and forth every month for 10 days or so using up my saved vacation time. Our home in Forest Hill Maryland is up for sale and I will retire and we will become full time Floridians once it sells.
