Larry Culp is a life long resident of Minnesota. He began blogging (Very Angry Bird on Blogger) at the suggestion of a friend shortly after his retirement. He is a retired Lieutenant commander (LCDR) whose specialty was cryptology. Since part of his service was done in the Naval Reserve, he also had a civilian career as a Contract Manager at such companies as Sperry Univac, Control Data, FMC and IBM. He has two grown daughters, and one grandson. He lives with his wife of 40+ years on a wooded lot just north of the Twin Cities. A political conservative, he is located in a very red BPOU within the very red CD6. And that is how he likes it.
