Welcome Aboard! My name is Jim Burke. I'm a retired United States Navy
Chief Petty Officer and a retired
Paramedic Supervisor from LaPorte County Emergency Medical Service in La Porte IN. I am now a part time Respiratory Therapist in Michigan City, IN. My venture into web
page building was inspired by my now 25 year old daughter who graduated from college in 2006 and is now an Environmental Chemist.
It is said that "Once A Chief, Always A Chief"...the title that
followed me into the ambulance service.
This page is dedicated to my fellow Chief Petty Officers, the United
States Navy and to all who have served their country in the military,
especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Between active and
reserve time my Naval career spanned 26 years. As I said
at my retirement ceremony "I've received many awards and honors during
my career, but the greatest honor was the opportunity to wear the uniform
of a Chief Petty Officer".
