I was born in 1950 in Kansas City, MO to Dr. Donald L. Smith & Phyllis J. Smith. Today, I have four sons, a teacher, a heart surgeon, an aeronautical engineer, and a construction worker.
I have an MBA from the University of Denver but I'm currently retired but own a cattle ranch in Pierson, Florida. It's been my dream to one day own a ranch out west but I somehow ended up in Florida.
I was drafted right out of high school in 1968. Two of us went for physicals and I came back 4F for type 1 insulin dependent diabetes which I've had for 62 years.
I've always felt a certain amount of guilt by not serving even though it was out of my hands. That's why I do what I do today bringing awareness to Florida MIAs through a project titled Florida_Vietnam_War_Casualties. It can found at
