About me:

FULL NAME: Bernd Werner Herrmann. Folks have been calling me "Ben" since the early 1950's - so that nickname stuck.

BIRTHPLACE: Moosburg, Bavaria (Germany)

CURRENT HOME: Central North Carolina where we moved after I retired from the Marine Corps. As a matter of background info, my parents and I emigrated to the United States in the early 1950's and settled in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area.

MILITARY SERVICE: 26 years of active service in the US Marine Corps (67 - 93).

OTHER JOB EXPERIENCES: Park and Lake Manager, and that was followed by being a New Home Construction Sales Real Estate Broker. I am fully retired now, although I don't consider myself "retired" in any sense of that word.

HOBBIES and PREFERRED ACTIVITIES: Avid physical fitness and weight training in various gyms. Hobbies involving material things are photography (doing that since Vietnam in '69) and higher-end audio. I tend to switch back and forth between the two. If you don't see me on these forums for a few months, it's because I turned the audiophile switch on, and I am focusing on that arena. Other likes include fine dining and wine tasting, gardening, and rifle and pistol marksmanship.

ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: Aquarius (Feb 13).

EDUCATION: (NC State University) - BS - Natural Resources and Parks Management - summa cum laude 4.01.
