    Every sailor stationed onboard Coral Sea from her commission October 1 1947, to her decommission in 1994, played a role in naval engagements and activities while in port state side or over seas.

 

    My fellow shipmates and I, along with other service members of the USS Nimitz (CVN-68), naval escort ships; Army Rangers, Air Force and Marines, all played a role in “Operation Eagle Claw” regardless of his duty. Now days I guess I would have to say his or her role.

AUGUST 2006 to FEBRUARY 2008


ENERGY QUEST NATIONAL ENERGY EFFICIENT DEVELOPMENT INC.
Senior President/CEO New Home Generation, INC.

JANUARY 2003 to AUGUST 2006


Wrote Sixteen Navy Books while living abroad in BA JA Mexico

DECEMBER 1999 to 2002

Opened trucking business. I shut both trucks down and closed by business May 2001, as there was no profit margin, only expenses and a loss of $50,000.00. Owned two semi-trucks. Sold all my trucks.

Worked with NuWest Commodities Exchange and have in the past been an agent for Transportation Unlimited, Bend, Oregon and Valley Transportation, Milwaukee, Oregon locating trucks for loads. I have also independently dispatched other trucking business trucks.

Publication of “The Magnificence of the Treasure Valley and Growth of Ada and Canyon County of Idaho and A Planned Community District or Municipality known as Montebello;” illustrates one of the largest proposed Planned Communities in Idaho as of 2002.

Executive Assistant for Chairman and President of Sun Rivers Investment, Inc., Idaho and American Modular Systems International (AMSI), Jefferson, Oregon, Chairman and President Sam Sarich (2000-2002).

Energy Quest Search Web Site has taken an enormous amount of time and includes many publications including ENERGY QUEST ENVIRONMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES, ENERGY QUEST: A BALANCED APPROACH SUPPLYING THE U. S. IT'S THRIST FOR ENERGY, ENERGY QUEST ENCYCLOPEDIA'S ENERGY EFFICIENT DEVICES/PRODUCTS AND MONTEBELLO.

DECEMBER 1997 to DECEMBER 1999

 

Developed a10-acre truck stop 72KM south of San Diego, Ca. in the country of Mexico next to the main freeway connecting Tijuana to Rosaritio to Ensenada, etc., over looking the coast. Two dump trucks, backhoe, front end loader and dozer were utilized to build a 250’ in length, 40’ in width and 20’ deep ditch, in order to gain access to the freeway.  I owned one of the two dump trucks.  My crew of Mexican citizens totaled 12. 

 

Political problems among the residents of the community and the Mexico government caused me to stop the project 99% finished. This truck stop is closed and the government closed the entrance when I stopped the development. The area I chose consisted of approximately 600-acres and is in between Baja mar world-class golf course and Baja Seasons RV Resort next to the ocean. The area is known as Ejido Ursulo Galvan. One day I may return to finish the project as the land is perfect for commercial usage and political problems related to the area may one day be solved.  The development expenses were approximately $50,000.00. Unfortunately, following the instructions of Ejido leaders as to how they wanted the entrance constructed against my better judgment merely wasted my money and when the rain fell during 2000, the Mexican government dug of the entrance so the freeway didn’t flood.

 

1992 to DECEMBER 1997

 

Studied many subjects on many topics and improved my skills as a construction estimator, blue print reader and building designer. I remolded one house and sold it. I purchased a second home in December 1997 on one-acre commercial ground in Jefferson Oregon. I still own this house.

 

I also improved my knowledge of auto mechanics, auto body and paint, opening a body shop located on our 60-acre farm. I bought and sold over 20 cars in a four-year period and supervised the repairing and painting.
