Hello to all, I am a new member here, so I will just say a little about myself and be on with my business. I was born in Phoenix, AZ but I grew up all over the USA because my dad was in the USAF. I myself joined the U.S. Navy and got out after 8 years with an honorable discharge. I went to ASU and got my degree in mechanical engineering. I am married and have two small children, a boy and a girl. I don't identify with any political party, I prefer to think about things on an individual basis, but I tend to choose more conservative than anything else. I'm sure I'll be talking to some of you in the near future, but until then, take care. Mech.Eng.
