Recent Activity  -


Volunteered for ROTC so as to complete my BA in 1968. Commissioned 2LT, Armor, FT Riley and after college graduation, I obtained a two year deferment to take my Masters in Psychology. While at AOB FT Knox, my orders were changed from FT Lewis/Vietnam to FT Benning where I served as the IHRU/HumRRO VOLAR Project Officer. That assignment converted me from 'marking time' to 'lifer'. Still Army Proud!
