After 37 years of government service, 32 with CIA and five as an officer in the Marine Corps, I retired last year. It was a great ride that allowed me to live overseas for 19 years from the then Zaire to Pakistan. I met my wife Kit in 1984 in the middle of a war and famine in Chad where she was working for the UN. Our son Daniel, Deerfield 07, is working for a Washington think tank, The Atlantic Council, and daughter Allie, Deerfield 10, just graduated from the Naval Academy and will be reporting to flight school as a Marine Officer. Kit and I have cut ties with Washington by moving to Bethany Beach, De. to enjoy my retirement.
