I was Born on December 2nd 1947 in upstate NY too a poor family on the farm. I learned how to steer a truck in the fields at age 8. By the time I was 12years old they had me spreading lime on the fields by myself. At age 15 I was picking up milk in the old iron milk cans. I picked the milk up at differnt farms and took it to the Dairy Lee plant for processing. When i turned 18 years old I went in the U. S. Air Force. I spent 8 years in the Air Force and served 1 year in Vietnam. After getting out of the service i went back to driving truck again. Today i drive a 48 X 102 Flat bed and yes i'm a border line diabetic.
