                                                                                       U. S Army My military service started with basic training at Fort Riley, Kansas.  I was trained as a radio operator with the 1st. Company 10th. Mountain Division and later transfered to Fort Lewis, Washington.  After that I spent a tour of duty in Korea stringing wire to various battery placements.  In 1954 I was assigned to H. Q. Battery in Osan, Korea.  This was the 398th. AAA Battery that encircled K55 air force field.  I was stationed here for 16 months – June, 1953 to October, 1954. Upon my return to the USA I married my wife Dorothy.  For the next 30 years I was a Milwaukee Policeman attaining the rank of lieutenant.  During this time I received BA Degree from Marquette University and a Masters Degree from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.  I built my own home with the help of my two sons.  I spend the Winters in Florida with my wife of 55 years.
