Jim Desrosiers















I spent 24 years in the USAF, all in the USAFSS/ESC.  Retired in August of 82 as a CMSgt.  Carol and I have 9 children between us, 31 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.  Since leaving the military I drove a truck for Dean Foods for 13 years, and worked for the State of Florida as a driver’s license examiner.  Retired 1 January 2008 due to medical conditions.  I have had a ruptured disc replaced, 4-way by-pass, carotid artery surgery, stints put in both legs and my groin, and last February had a craniotomy to stop a brain bleed.  Presently I suffer from arteriosclerosis throughout my body, and also a severe case of neurocardiogenic syncope. Through all these medical problems the Good Lord has blessed me, and I am doing just fine.  Blessed to be here and roaring to go.  Both Carol and I enjoyed the 2008 reunion so much (our first) that we started making plans the next week for the next year's reunion.  Praying the Lord will see fit for us to go.
