      > My name is Richard Strait. I go by Rich or the nickname of "Doc" which is what most folks call me. The nickname comes from my military career. I am a retired Navy Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman. The Marines called me "Doc" and since I served my whole career with the Marines, it has stuck with me since then. Even my wife Karen, KD8DHJ, was in the Marines and she calls me Doc too. Well, when she isn't mad at me at least.

That role has lead me to be appointed as the regional lead for West Michigan for Red Cross Disaster Services Technology.
