How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(firstname.lastname@example.org) for the full details.
Tim--Thanks for the note! I haven't been on consimworld for years, and it's nice to visit again. At APL I work offsite most of the time from my home in West Virginia. Because I'm not often there, I don't do mentoring. However, my supervisor, Scott Simpkins, does mentor, and I sometimes have interaction with his mentees. Scott is a wargame enthusiast, too, which is nice. If you'd like, I can alert him to your son and see if he can mentor him. Just let me know. Bob
