Greetings. I go by GDF Pops (my grandkids call me Pops). I am a part of the 928 Militia. Our unit is based out of the Heber-Overgaard area in the sunny state of Arizona. I am former United States Army (1976 - 1984, 82nd Abn 2/504). I have an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering (specializing in high voltage distribution systems) from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California (yeah, I know... I just went to school there). I am an NRA certified Firearms Safety Instructor and have taught firearms safety and hunter safety courses for the Boy Scouts of America (back in the day when they were actually "boy" scouts), and for Arizona Game and Fish. I am now retired.
