 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Currently retired and enjoying every minute of it. I'm a Ham radio operator and can talk with someone new almost every day from almost anywhere. The wife and I have a travel trailer and get out to the Michigan State Parks most of our summers. The Postal Service and Army Service have fond memories but retired life is relaxing and very enjoyable.
   
Other Comments:
After my Army Reserve unit in Battle Creek, MI was disbanded in April of 1994 I was offered a early retirement do to the down sizing of the Reserves. So, they transferred me into the Army Retired Reserve. I stayed in the Retired Reserve until November of 2008, which was my 60th birthday, and then I received my retirement from the Army.
