In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days...
OH wait, That's a different guy. But I am originally from West Philadelphia and I do have a story about Will Smith, but that is for another time.
You are here to learn a little more about me, Marc Ian Griffin!
I am humbled that you took the time to meet me. Thank you!
Let's face it, we all know that there is a LOT of garbage of the internet and it is difficult to discern who to trust and who is the snake in the grass.
My goal is to make it very easy for you to find me and understand what type of person I am. I have made my social media links available so you can do your due diligence on me.
It is easy for someone to write whatever they like about themselves but the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. You will see more of the real me on social media.
I currently live in Chesapeake, Virginia. Just a few minutes from the worlds largest naval base.
I enlisted into the Navy back in 1987, right out of high school. Ronald Reagan was still president and the Cold War was still going on. No cell phones, internet, or Starbucks. DVD's were not even heard of! LOL
I settled down in Cheasepeake after I retired from the US Navy in 2007 after 20 years of service. Below are a few pictures from my retirement and when I was on my last ship, the USS Nassau.
Now I am married, nearly 50 years old (everyone says I look younger than my age), and have 5 kids (all grown) and one sweet granddaughter (Gemma).
Me and Shelley
Ain't we cute?
Gemma and her G-Paw
Thank God for grand-kids! My granddaughter is awesome!
