While growing up as a young boy my first love was baseball. I dreamt regularly of one day playing for the Boston Red Sox. Although I did get to play two years of semi-professional baseball upon graduating from high school, I soon recognized that my slowness of foot was not going to allow me to be a major leaguer.During high school and also during my first two years of college, I thought I wanted to be a Pharmacist. During that stretch of time, I worked in a drug store in the town I grew up in which was Westwood which is located 25 miles outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Mid-way through my second year of college, the powers-to-be increased the curriculum requirement for Pharmacy school from four years to five. It was then that I determined that I would leave school to fulfill my military obligation by joining the Marine Corps. Upon returning from boot camp at Parris Island, SC. and Camp Lejuene, NC and while awaiting my reserve unit’s orders to be shipped out to Vietnam, I began looking for a job. It was then that I began my hotel career at the Sheraton Boston as a Mail and Information Clerk. The Sheraton Boston was at that time one of the largest hotels in the country at 1012 rooms.
