Dr. Robert L. McHenry is a retired United States Air Force Officer with 25 years’ service. He began his Air Force career in December 1965 after graduating from High School that summer. As a member of the baby-boomer generation he is also a ‘Class of 1965’ High School graduate that joined the military to avoid being drafted. He used his military teaching experience to work as an adjunct professor teaching business and management courses in several colleges over the years. In addition, he personally developed two training courses he taught in two different Ohio prisons. Dr. McHenry currently resides with his wife of 35 years and their toy poodle in an independent living cottage within a large Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). He jokingly refers to his CCRC residence as a prison where he is a trustee allowed to depart the campus while the residents living in Assisted Living and Rehab Center are prisoners. He considers himself a realist in that a half-full glass of Amaretto is neither full nor empty. He researches extensively to write with documented facts and stats. He has more books in varying stages of development.
