I am from Plains, MT. I am 66 years old, a retired Army veteran with serious anger issues, and a rabid dislike for pain and silent suffering. I’ve been in recovery for 7 years, 5 months. During the past 5 years, I have learned that I cannot go it alone in recovery. I need you and others on this journey with me.  I am learning who I am and what makes me the man that I am today. Alcohol is my nemesis. My passion is to be there when you stumble, to be a friend and colleague, and to give back, what I have so humbly received, to friends and family, and those who will become friends and family. I am at my best in nature. I have replaced my addiction to alcohol with photography. Behind the camera, I am all smiles and see life in a different light and focus. In front of the camera, you’ll see for yourself, smiles are rare. I am Rick Williamson and I Am MPN!
