Semi-retired former military officer. Retired from United States Air Force. Currently employed by the United States Army at Dugway Proving Ground. But, you say, my location shows Logan Utah? Yes, I currently work at Dugway 4 days during the week, renting an apartment there, and I drive to Logan on the weekends. In several weeks I anticipate that my base of operations will shift to Dugway, Utah.
I am "home grown" in Utah, but in my military experience, I moved to a lot of places: California, Ohio, Israel, Idaho, Alaska. I travelled to many more places on business trips: Washington, Hawaii, Arizona, Colorado, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Michigan, New York, to name some of them. I hope I bring a more "global" perspective to things, based on these experiences. I am a little restless and not adverse to relocating.
If it makes a difference, I am definitely an "evening" person.
I guess I never was really adroit at social skills. Here in the autumn of life, I'm probably not going to make great strides of improvement.
Although I consider myself a reasonably descent human being, I think I would be untruthful if I represented myself as a perfect "white knight" riding out to rescue a fair damsel. Like most guys, I probably have a little bit of rogue in me that begs for redemption. Any redeeming angels out there interested in helping with that effort?
I am still traumatized by the unpleasant bitter fighting of a recent divorce. I think where I am coming from by being here on LDS Singles is that I am cautiously reaching out for friendship, to help with recovery/rehabilitation. Charitable contributions to that endeavor would be appreciated (LOL). Anyone interested in the challenge? Maybe yes, maybe no. If you want to know more, just ask, and I will do my best to honestly respond to questions.
I recently read a book, "Visions of Glory" (by John Pontius), based on the recommendation of a friend. One thing I took from the book was that I needed to adjust my expectations. I have been seeking after absence of adversity, and bemoaning the fact that I hadn't attained it. Now it seems that God uses adversity to purify us. So I'm trying to adjust my attitude to where I hope I am learning the lessons that God wants me to learn from the adversity that I experience. Still a work in progress, with some ups and downs to the attitude adjustment.
