About US

As long as I can remember, I have had a deep interest in history, particularly military history. While attending the University of Mississippi in 1975,  I was introduced to reenacting by Dr. James Cook .  I owe a deep debt to him for getting me started in this great hobby.  Since then, I have participated in events spanning from the French & Indian War through WWII; meeting great people from all over the US and Europe. 

After graduation from Ole Miss in 1979, I entered the US Army beginning my training as a 2nd LT in Armor at Fort Knox, KY.  Upon completion of that school I was given the opportunity to attend flight training at Fort Rucker, AL where I graduated in August of 1980.  From 1980 until I left active duty I served as an instructor pilot at the Army Aviation Center and with the 101st Airborne Division as an assistant battalion operations officer, battalion adjutant and company commander.  During 1989 I was the Military Group - El Salvador, helo detachment commander.

I left the active Army in Oct of 1989 for civilian job as a flight instructor at Fort Rucker, AL flying UH-1 and CH47 helicopters.  At the same time I continued flying for the Army in the Mississippi National Guard.

After 27 years of flying for the Army I retired in 2006.  It was a fun ride, I ended my career qualified in UH1s, OH58s, CH47s and AH64s.

In 1995, I started Military Warehouse as a hobby - never realizing that within a few years it would become much more than a hobby.  One of my binding principals was that our products had to be authentic. I have often been described as "picky" about authenticity, but this really isn't such a bad thing when you're in the business of reproducing historic products.

In 2000 my future wife Sissy joined me in making Military Warehouse a growing business.  She helped with every aspect of the business.  Unfortunately fate step in our way and she was fatally injured on our wedding day and passed away the next morning.  With her smile and ideas in mind I have continued to push Military Warehouse forward in the manner she and I had planned.
