I have long had a passion for coaching and teaching kids how to get the most from their participation in sports and athletic competition. From wrestling to football, softball, and ultimately golf, I coached and taught kids how to play, compete, and learn from their experiences. Check out the link teachingkidsgolf.com below for information on my Teaching Kids Golf books.
In life, we learn from the experiences of our parents, teachers, coaches, and all those around us. Then, when we're alone in our life craft, we all become pilots of our own destiny.
An historical fiction story based upon real world events of unprecedented and unpredictable circumstances. It begs the questions: Where is the truth? What are the illusions?
Sixty years ago, young men from across the country made the biggest decision of their lives. They all accepted appointments to the United States Air Force Academy. In June 1960, they arrived at the Academy as members of the Class of 1964, the sixth class to enter the nation’s newest service academy. Four years later they graduated and began exciting careers in the Air Force. They flew fighters and helicopters, one flew with the Thunderbirds, another shot down two Migs over Vietnam, one became a POW, and several became general officers. After the Air Force, each continued a life of service in a diversity of professions: lawyer, vascular surgeon, entrepreneur, CEO, astronaut and commander of three space ships, and service at high level government positions. Now, they look back on their experience at the Academy and reflect upon their respective flights through life—and their unbreakable bonds, and lasting memories.
