Born into an Army Air Corps family during WWII (Dad flew P-47s in the Pacific Theater and demobbed in '46). He was recalled to the Air Force for jet fighter pilot duty at end of '51 for Korean War and stayed in because "flying jet fighters is just too much fun to quit." In December '64 I was "greeted" and sent to Ft. Jackson, SC, for basic, then on to specialty training outside New York City. While in a "cushy" super clerk job in suburban D.C., the XO decided I needed "to do bigger things." Six months at Benning and I was a newly-minted 2d john. Remained at Benning for a few months then on to Ft. Ben Harrison for some more training, then a 21 day cruise on the S.S. Weigel (sp?) to the shores of sunny Southeast Asia for a 14-month "hands-on" advanced seminar in nation building and conflict resolution in the live fire zone. Final 12 months was at JFK Center for Special Warfare at Bragg, then off to graduate school and life since June '69.

Was in the Marines from 83'-87'. Worked on helicopters, traveled around a bit, and got out as an E-4 Corporal. Miss it sometimes.
