in case you didn't guess...my name is Bob. I live in the St. Louis area. This site is dedicated to the friends and family that I hang
out with. Meet some of my friends in the BobsPlanet
Hall of Fame.
I was born in
AT-38B, Holloman AFB, NM.
worked at the 479th for about two years, and then transferred to the
49th Tactical Fighter Wing on the other side of the base, working on
F-15 Eagles. There I worked in the Inspection Section, inspecting for
damage and worn components from the rigors of flying.
While in the Air Force, I attended a few different colleges in pursuit of my education. Among these are of course, Community College of the Air Force(CCAF), and New Mexico State University(NMSU). In
1989, I got out of the Air Force after four long years, and came back home,
where I have been ever since. After a short attempt to continue my career
as an aircraft mechanic in 1989, only to find out that all of the major
airlines and aircraft manufacturers were having difficulties and were laying off workers, and then working in various strange
occupations like car sales and security work, I fell back on my second line of
experience, computers. In the Air Force, I worked on the computer systems
there at the maintenance docks, and found out that I had a knack for it, so naturally, I saw it as a secondary career
choice. It turned out very well, as I have been working in the
Information Technology field ever since. I continued college at Meremec College in St. Louis, studying Computer Science and Management, Information Systems

After working for many years in the field as a systems technician, systems administrator, and finally a network engineer, I worked my way up through management and after leading some great teams, I landed a job working for the government, managing the Army's SDDC Systems Response Center, where I work today.
the years I have had my trials, and have been married and divorced twice, and
had three kids along the way.
