Serving in the United States Navy on Guam I flew with Lance on many TACAMO Missions in Squadron VQ-3 where we flew classified missions guarding this great nation. I went on many scuba dives with he & his wife in the Philippine Sea. When I learned that Lance skydived he volunteered to teach me how to jump out of a perfectly good airplane and piloted the aircraft on my first jump. He was my vision of a true Naval Aviator & one great fellow...Fair Winds and Following Seas buddy.
