Jeff Bonnell

Jeff BonnellJeff is your everyday, dime-a-dozen, poetry-writing, Ex-Marine river guide. (What rhymes with"Semper Fi"?) He has worked in a steel mill and worn a sarong (thankfully not at the same time), and we have seen him take off his camouflaged army boots to reveal pink toenail polish. He has the Marine Corps crest tattooed on one arm and a symbol for peace and love on the other; half way between is a broken nose and a big, teddy-bear heart. Understandably, he is always a hit on Bachelor Party trips and is regularly requested on Girl Scout trips. He is currently studying to become a teacher at Ohio University and will someday coach wrestling (and teach sewing, no doubt) in high school.
