I am in the process of uploading the names (from the Commencement Excercise Program)and senior class pictures (from the He'e Nalu). So far I have come across a number of you that did not hav

My checkered career has taken me all over the world. I tried to retire (my second one) from the United Nations in December, 2007 but found myself at loose ends so re-joined the UN and am now working in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. History: I managed to graduate with a degree in Business Administration from UH Manoa. Heeding Uncle Sam's call, I enlisted in the Air Force and was soon on my way from the comforts of Hawaii to Officers Training School in Texas. After completing 4+ years of active duty, I remained in the Air Force Reserve until my retirement as Deputy Group Commander (Lt Colonel) at McChord AFB, Washington (26+ total years). I served mostly stateside with many TDYs to the South Pacific and Asia. Later, with the help of the GI Bill, I managed to earn my Masters Degree in International Management at Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona, work in International Banking for 15+ years, while concurrently teaching evening international business classes at a community college for 5+ years, spend 2+ years in Tokyo as the Trade Representative for Washington State, and later spend 2+ years in Moscow, Russia courtesy of the US Peace Corps as Chief of Admin and Finance for the 60+ Volunteers scattered throughout the country. Soon after completing that assignment and returning to the USA, I was recruited to work with the United Nations in a number of peace-keeping missions all in sub-Saharan Africa, and completed my 10+ year career with the UN in late 2007 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Sadly, while working in Africa, Lisa, my second wife of 16 years, passed away. I later married an African gal whom I had met while on assignment in Ghana, West Africa and we spent our honeymoon on safari in Kruger Park, South Africa. Esther and I are now happily living in quiet obscurity in Tucson, Arizona where I'm making her attend classic/antique car shows with me as well as watch old Humphrey Bogart films when she's not working as a newly-minted Medical Administrator at a nearby clinic. I've advised Esther to learn the chorus of "Witch Doctor" because the words will likely appear on her upcoming US Citizenship exam.
