He served in Thailand during the Vietnam War conflict in 1966-1967 and then again in 1972-1973. He retired while serving at Dyess Air Force Base on 1 March 1975.
His next career and passion was as a trucker (both regional and cross-country). His CB handle was “Triple Nickel.” He was an owner operator, from August 1984 through August 1996. Most of that time was he was leased to United Van Lines where he hauled trade shows, electronics and special commodities.
