Prior to becoming a consultant Kerry was a career military officer. He served as
an enlisted man in the Navy on
submarines and then with UDT-21 (Underwater
Demolition Team - Class #20). UDT has since transitioned into today's
SEALs.* He left the Navy to
attend college and through R.O.T.C. (as the top cadet) received a Regular Army Commission. During his two tours in
Vietnam he served both as an Infantry Platoon Leader (173'rd Airborne) and an
Infantry Company Commander (82'nd Airborne). A gunshot wound ended his military
career. He has two bronze stars (one for valor) and two purple hearts.

After consulting and teaching on Oahu for thirteen years Kerry retired to
the Big Isle. In 1988 he donated an Organization Communication Workshop to the
"East Hawaii Coalition to Stop Food Irradiation." That one workshop evolved into
what's now called Community Communications (ComCom), a truly (no advertising
and no one gets
paid) nonprofit, 501(c)(3),
educational organization. The various activists of the Big Isle were
responsible for enrolling more than 1000 participants into the
Communication-Skills Workshop for Community Leaders, a.k.a., The Introduction to
Leadership Communication-Skills Workshop.
Kerry's military training experiences represent proven educational processes
having to do with teamwork and excellence. He has integrated these various
leadership-communication models with what is currently being taught in the
fields of human potential and speech-communication. Ninety-five percent of the
written by ComCom's
participants report favorably. Most participants say it transforms their
experience of communication.
Kerry also does free three-hour Communication Consultations/Coaching for individuals, couples, and small-groups;
he also facilitates 6-month
Support Groups. For a
