From An Outhouse to the White House

And Then Some

With over five decades of service to his country, Hal is certainly not a man to be easily detoured or dissuaded from his mission. This book is a real testament of how long-suffering, perseverance, loyalty, integrity, and patriotism. Hal's wit and humor which he never outgrew even until today, allowed him to associate with highly recognized and well-established people. His life really began after he was kicked out by his father. He had a bitter childhood that continued well into his teens, but everything changed after he became a member of the United States Marine Corps. His success was not given to him on a silver platter, it was definitely a roller-coaster adventure. I lived, I laughed, I cried, I loved, I fell, and I rose yet again. From an Outhouse to the White House, and Then Some, will show you just how he did it.


Beyond The Mountains And Across The Seas

Over 50 years of Romanticizing Travel

To put one's travel life into proper perspective can be like teetering on the edge of history. To have lived it, I was totally ensconced in parts of the events that became monumental worldwide. The history became real for me due to my employment with the United States Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Tennessee State Trooper, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and career Marine allowed me to be in some of the historical places. Additionally, the meeting of the foreign Heads of State, The Royals, and other famous people from many other countries was truly remarkable. Undeniably, my journey from the land to each of the coast in different continents were indeed a great adventure!
