Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology
Timid and and afraid I wished with all my might,
Not to be afraid when day turns to night.
So I found a magical helmet with a shiny green glow,
And put it on so that all the monsters will know.
That this little fellow,
Is now a soldier boy.
