Recent Activity  -


After the war I decided to leave the service and go to college. I had the GI Bill so returned to my home town of Denver CO and I attended a community college. There I earned an Associates of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. I obtained a position as a Police Officer and later a Deputy Sheriff. After a rewarding career in law enforcement I decided to become a Recruiter which is what i do now :) My passion is giving veterans jobs!!!
