About the author

David Carney

David R. Carney retired from the U.S. Army and Alabama Army National Guard as a Senior Non-Commissioned Officer and is also a retired banker. He spent seven years in Europe and has travelled to over thirty countries around the world.
Carney is an author and is able to draw on his rich background of diverse international experiences to write his books. He was raised in a dysfunctional family and lived in homes across the nation while attending many schools, and as such, he became a high school dropout who later attended eight years of college and university earning four degrees, all with highest honors, including an MBA from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. 
Carney has been very instrumental in the military veteran’s community, often speaking at events as well as organizing events for deployed service members and their families. He has been recognized by the U.S. Army and also by his community for his many military and veteran activities. For his support to the National Guard the Adjutant General of the Alabama National Guard awarded him the Distinguished Service Medal of Alabama, the highest award presented by the Alabama National Guard. He has also been presented the key to five Alabama cities for support to their service members.

According to a recent Huntsville Times (Alabama) article a photo of him is “What Volunteers Look Like.” 
A Redstone Arsenal Rocket front page article about him said he is a “People Person Dedicated to Service.”
The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Redstone Huntsville Chapter voted Carney and his wife, Judith, to be their Volunteer Family of the Year 2019. They won the same award at the Third Region, AUSA (nine states and territories across the southeast).
David is on the Board of the Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial and as such co-wrote a book about the Memorial which has been widely received across the area.
Although now retired, he is still writing novels and how-to-do books. He lives in the small town of New Market, Alabama with his wife, Judith, and their two cats. Judith is also a published author. They are very active in their church.
