Cowboy Wayne teleported into Second Life on 19 Jul 2006, then dropped out again for about a year. Like many first-time Second Lifers, he found the virtual world environment a bit of a challenge. As a result, the U.S. Military Veterans Center will always include newcomer needs in its list of priorities.
In everyday life, Cowboy Wayne is a U.S. Navy vet. He currently works in the engineering industry and has been a radio station disc jockey.
Cowboy Wayne constructed the U.S. Military Veterans Center on his land in Second Life. He is very well known for his two trademark sayings.
“Me Build Block” describes his foundational role in the U.S. Military Veterans Center. Visitors to Patriot Island often arrive just to see Cowboy Wayne’s replica of the Tomb of the Unknowns, faithfully modeled after the real life original at the Arlington Virginia National Veterans Cemetery.
He created a cutout of himself with a cartoon chat bubble saying “Ya’ll Are Killin’ Me!” for those times when his friends do something that tickle his funny bone. Visitors to the Patriot Island MWR area, Cowboy Country, will be greeted at the door by a Cowboy Wayne cutout they can smile at when they cut loose.
