I was in the class of '70, but I dropped out in my junior year. In Dec of 69 (New Years Eve) I joined the Army with my friend Mike Hoyden. I graduated Basic and Advanced Training and was on leave in Everett when the Class of 70 graduated. I had intended to stay in the Army for the three years I enlisted for, then drive the big rigs with my Dad, however, he died in January 1971. I had gotten married to Laurel in November 1970. She was an Army brat and showed me that the Army life was actually pretty good. I ended up staying in the Army as a career. I retired on 1 March 1999 after 29 years and two months of active duty. I then remained as a Department of the Army Civilian and contractor for another 7 years. In Jan of 2006 I resigned from my career of 36 years to drive the big rigs with my youngest son Chris. In April of 2007, I accepted a job with Cantu Services, Inc in Wichita Falls, Texas, a government food service contractor, where I was the Director of Operations, Plans and Programs.
My Army career took me all around the world and several US assignments. In Germany I was assigned to Berlin. Other overseas assignments to Korea (twice), Turkey and Hawaii. On the US mainland, I have served at Ft Leaveonworth, Kansas (where I met and married Laurel); Ft Ord, Ca; Ft Dix, NJ; Ft Lewis, Wa; Ft Jackson, SC (Drill Sergeant); Ft McPherson & Ft Gillem, Ga; Ft Bliss, Tx; Ft Irwin, Ca and Ft Polk, La(where I retired). Laurel and I now resided in Princeton, LA since retiring for good. We are now in full time leisure mode.UPDATED. After two years of retirement I went back to work. I am the Facility Manager of the Shreveport Regional Airport Parking Lot. Yeah, my widget factory job. I am the senior member of my company here and I only lead 15 cashiers. Like stealing. Maybe I am resorting to my childhood.
