Tim Maas

Retired Quality Assurance Specialist with the U.S. Army
I was raised as a Lutheran, but now consider myself a non-denominational Christian. I have been married for 34 years, and have two married children -- a son who is an attorney, and a daughter who is a mathematics teacher -- as well as a granddaughter who was born in April, 2019, and another granddaughter who was born on 17 February 2020.  I retired in 2013 after 35 years as a Quality Assurance Specialist (Ammunition Surveillance), which is a civilian (Civil Service) career program that inspects and classifies the Army's stockpile of conventional, guided missile, and toxic chemical munitions, so that the Army has an accurate picture of the serviceability and safety of its ammunition stockpile at any given time.
