My Birth and the First Few Years
I started out as a baby and spent the first couple of years of my life in the small town – if you can call it that --- of Mehama, Oregon. Born to a Marine and his school teacher wife, I was an only child.
That did not last long, however, as my two brothers arrived on the scene two years later. Twins, they were, and twins they still are.
We bounced around between Oregon and California, moving to El Toro when my dad was stationed there, back up to Oregon to live at my grandparents’ home when he was transferred overseas (Japan, Okinawa, elsewhere), back down south to Fallbrook when he was stationed at Camp Pendleton and then while he was in Viet Nam.
