He was a part of the 3 Amp Duck Company, entering the war as a SFC E6, and being discharged as a Chief C. Officer. He received the Bronze Star, Commendation Medal, and 12 other medals for his commitments. He departed from Korea in July 1951, and was discharged in January 1973. He went to college for 3 years after his discharge, and owned his own business.
