Vietnam veteran. 40 years experience in the oil and gas industry. Worked and lived in the Middle East for the past 32 years. Married, eight children(two wives, kind of a yours, mine and ours thing), 15 grandchildren. 63 years old, trying to retire but they won't let me. An absolute novice with regard to investing but thoroughly understand the 'buy low', 'sell high' concept. Learned it from my Father who used to be a truck farmer. The wisest, most uneducated man I've ever known. Trying to put two teenagers through college, retire comfortably and continue to build my south Mississippi empire.
