He served in numerous positions, including Director in 2012 and 2013. Mike was able to put his exceptional writing and leadership skills to work as the chapter editor and led numerous rides and provided narration at historic military sites.

Mike was a deep thinker and a passionate man. He provided leadership, counsel, mentoring, love, motivation and friendship to so many along his journey. He loved spending time with his family, and when not helping others, writing poetry, playing golf, fishing, and riding his Harley. Some of his poetry is published in American Anthologies of Amateur Poets and is in the Congressional Library.
