Milford Republican Party

Born in Fort Bragg, NC in 1950.  Army brat of a heroic paratrooper, who was taken as a POW, in the Battle of the Bulge, World War II.  SFC Thornton was a strict man who taught us to complete all jobs we undertook and quoted General Patton when he said "Always do more than what is required of you."  As a very young man, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.  After Boot Camp I served aboard Camp Lejeune, NC, Okinawa, Japan, and in Vietnam before returning home to complete my College Degree in Operations Management.  After two years of the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) I was commissioned in the Air Force.  Half of my career was at Hanscom Air Force Base (AFB), working on a digital, tactical, secure, combat, spread spectrum, frequency agile, networking system.  The remainder of my Air Force Career was spent working on the USAF Space Shuttle Program at Vandenberg AFB, CA.  There I was Chief, Ground Based Computer Engineering when the program was discontinued due to the Jan 28, 1986 Challenger Disaster.   After separation from the Air Force I opened a Computer Design and Repair Shop, Compu-Fixer.Com, at 222 Elm street in Milford, NH.  The .com downturn and bad debts ended that foray. Currently retired from the daily grind and ready to donate my capabilities to support Milford's needs in Concord.  Married to Elizabeth Reed Thornton since November, 1983. Disabled Marine & Airman needs YOUR VOTE to continue to serve our country.
