I'm a Social Studies Teacher

This is my twenty second year of teaching history and geography.

My Passion for History Preservation

It all started in a army surplus store in 1976. I was wandering around looking at all the gear brought back from WWII. If you are older, you will remember it was everywhere. My parents allowed me to buy a couple cheap items. One of the items I picked is the M1 Carbine magazine ammo case that is seen to the left. I have kept it all of these years. It is not the most interesting WW2 item I have, but certainly one of the more important pieces to me, as it is the piece that started my World War Two collection.
