Gregg retired after faithfully serving this Great Nation for over 42 years. Those 42 years are compiled of 20 years military service, 5 years as a Department of Defense Contactor and my final seventeen years as a Government Civilian Program Manager developing capabilities to keep the Nation safe from Weapons of mass destruction. Gregg joined the Army in 1985, went to the Special Forces Qualification Course in 1988 and successfully donned my Green Beret in December of 1988 whereupon he joined 10th Special Forces Group in Germany. During Gregg’s Army career he deployed to Desert Storm, Provide Comfort and more importantly to Operation Gothic Serpent where he earned a Silver Star for his actions on the Ground in Mogadishu Somalia on 3/4 October 1993 as part of Task force Ranger. Gregg has fully retired from the Federal Government in October of 2022. Gregg is a father of 5 wonderful adult children and the joy of my life is my two beautiful Granddaughters.
