I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in January of 1986 and, after training, was stationed at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia.  I received an honorable discharge in January of 1990.  I attended Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia, where I graduated in December of 1993 with a B.S. in Mathematics with a minor in Secondary Math Education.
