About fredswolfe

I was born in 1949 and raised in Paris, Illinois. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1967 and received an assignment to serve aboard the U.S.S. Mauna Loa, AE-8 off the coast of Vietnam. During my three years and nine months of active duty, I toured the Mediterranean Sea twice and the Caribbean Sea once. What an experience to look back on! I was separated from the Navy three months early to attend College of the Redwoods in Eureka, California. Near the end of my first term as Student Body President, I received Jesus Christ and became born again in 1974. I have been studying the Bible, The Word of God and teaching others ever since. I have been married for thirty five years to my wife Joanne, from Whitestone, New York. We are the proud parents of two grown sons and two granddaughters and two grandsons. We have lived in Illinois, New York, Arizona and California, where we now make our home, in Marina Del Rey.
