AUGUST MEMBER SPOT​LIGHT


JIM "SENIOR"

Meet the Members of CMVA 18-3

I was born in Honolulu, HI in 1963, the son of a 30 year career Naval Officer and mother who worked in the steel industry. I was raised in Germantown, TN and graduated in 1981.

After graduating high school, I briefly worked in construction pouring concrete and hanging steel joists. Once realizing it simply wasn't my niche', I joined the Navy, following in my father's footsteps in July 1982.

I met my wife and we married in 1993. She was serving as an Executive Yeoman on General “Storman Norman” Schwartzkopf's staff, and I was serving on the Dwight D. Eisenhower. We have 3 wonderful, successful children in their 30's and 5 beautiful grandkids.

I served in aircraft maintenance for 22 years and my last 4 years of service as the Command Senior Enlisted Advisor, retiring after 26 years of service. My wife is a nurse and has served in the medical industry for 30 plus years and continues to do so today.

I joined the CVMA 18-3 family in December 2017 and am so thankful to have done so.
