Following his tour of duty in Vietnam and subsequent physical therapy and recovery from combat wounds, Tony was informed by the Army that permanent nerve damage to his arm and shoulder would not allow him to pursue his dreams as a career aviator. After discharge from the service, Tony made a career in management with AT&T where he was able to complete his college education and went on to get an MBA. Recently retired; he and his wife Janet started their own Education Consulting, Team Building and Outdoor Adventure business. Their travels allow them to pursue both domestic and global interests. Following encouragement from family & friends, his most honored medals from combat are now displayed in a shadow box in their home. Some of which include two (2) Bronze Stars for heroism, two (2) Purple Hearts, Air Medal for valor in flight, Vietnamese Gallantry Cross, and Presidential Unit Citation.
When not traveling and writing, Tony spends much of his time training two overly enthusiastic black lab retrievers, Chase & Hunter Bailey. They love to bird hunt, fly fish, and help guide the raft down-river.
