Rick (after my retirement from the Army)

Rick and Derek, Jan 2003
A portrait Derek and I had taken right before I left for Kuwait last year.

A little about me

I am from Parkersburg, WV. I graduated from Parkersburg High School in 1979 and for a short time attended Parkersburg Community College. I got married, joined the Army in 1983, had a baby boy (who is now 19 years old), and got divorced. While in the Army, I was stationed in Germany, Hawaii, New York, 3 tours in Korea, and 5 tours at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas. I recently moved back home to West Virginia. It was nice to see the rest of the world, but Parkersburg has always been home..


I recently got interested in tracing my family history. The "My Family" link at left is the results of my efforts so far.

My Army Career

I'm very proud of my Army career. Click on the link at left to see my Army page. It's a short recap of my 20 year career. There is also a picture of Derek pinning my Sergeant First Class rank on at my promotion ceremony on July 1, 1996.
