I am often asked why I retired to upstate New Hampshire and took up organic farming. Following over two decades of military service that spanned several conflicts and campaigns I became a first responder. I served in several different positions as a first responder. I decided that serving on the front lines of civilizations traumatic civil and law enforcement events was sufficient for a lifetime following my military service.
When a path to retirement presented itself I decided to take it.
I have attached to this post images that reflect my career as a first responder.
As a private security officer I managed a 54 man security force responsible for the security of 4 square city blocks, a separate outlaying facilities and a hanger for corporate helicopters and Lear jets at a local international airport. The population of the headquarters complex was 18,000 people on a daily basis.

I and my wife are currently restructuring our financial holdings to buy a house in Florida this year. We will retain our farming homestead as a summer vacation place now that vaccines have been developed for the pandemic. We are in the top 97th percentile of income in the United States with a low debt to income ratio.
