I flunked out of college and was drafted. Went to OCS at Fort Lee, Virginia and was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Quartermaster Corps. I served in Viet Nam for a year and a half (extended six months) with the 262 QM Battalion (POL). After returning from Viet Nam I was stationed at Fort Stewart, Georgia (Hunter Army Airfield) and promoted to Captain. The Army sent me back to complete my college education and I graduated from Baruch College, CUNY. I then served 13 months in the Republic of Korea. I got married and was stationed in the Federal Republic of Germany. I was separated from the service thanks to Senator Nunn's RIF in 1975. I had two children, Stephanie and William. I then went to Law School at the University of Maryland. I was in private practice for a few years (in Gettysburg and Lancaster, Pennsylvania) and then became an Administrative Law Judge for the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. I retired after 18 years as an ALJ. My first wife (Bonnie Crawford) died and I subsequently married Eileen Clarke from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. We now live in Cochranville, Pennsylvania, in a 55+ community.
