I went into the US Navy right out of High School and served 2 years active and 6 years inactive. I joined to do my part as a Patriot. I served on 2 ships, USS WISCONSIN and USS NASSUA. Both ships have since been decommissioned. I am a Veteran of the Desert Storm. I believe there are more Patriots than just our Military such as POLICE OFFICERS, FIRE FIGHTERS and EMT's to name a few. I am Married to Violet Hilton who is also a member of the Guard. I have ridden bikes since the Navy and my wife for the past few years. I am on FB as JOHN HILTON if anyone wants to friend me for easier communication.
