Upon graduating from Lehigh I went to work for Continental National American Insurance Company as a management trainee. I was drafted within six months of graduating. Rather than go in via the draft I enlisted for intelligence duties in the US Army. Within 2 years I received a direct commission as an officer. I served on active duty in the Army for 27+ years and, then, 19 years as a civilian - 46 years of Army service. I am retired now. I spend time with my two children and 5 grandchildren. My son got his Master's Degree from Lehigh. I now spend time volunteering as a Master Gardener. And, I am working initiatives for clean water as a member of the Nansemond River Preservation Alliance.
