I was born in Fayetteville, NC and raised in Rocky Mount in a Christian, conservative home with my mother, father, and 4 brothers. I attended public schools in Nash County and graduated from Northern Nash Senior High School in 1979. My first vote was cast for Ronald Reagan in November, 1980.
In 1981, I enlisted in the United States Air Force. During my enlistment, I was assigned to Strategic Air Command. My primary duty was to remove and replace Nuclear Warheads and Guidance Control sections on Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles. I was trained in counter terrorism, executive protection, and possessed a Top Secret security clearance through the United States Air Force. I had extensive weapons training and was awarded a ribbon as a small arms expert. I left Military service in 1985 after 4 years of service with an Honorable Discharge. I then served 2 years on reserve before completing my Military obligation.
