About me:

FULL NAME: Bernd Werner Herrmann.

BIRTHPLACE: Moosburg, Bavaria (Germany)

CURRENT HOME: We emigrated to the United States in the early 1950's and settled in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. My father was a WW II German Army (Wehrmacht) Officer and he elected for us to emigrate to the United States following the war. We subsequently became naturalized proud American citizens.

EMPLOYMENT STATUS: Retired US Marine Corps and now fully retired.

ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: Aquarius (Feb 13).

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

SCENARIOS THAT TEND TO IRRITATE ME: Political correctness in all forms, violent radicals, socialists, and establishment politicians in general.
