 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After my 2 year U.S. Army committment, I returned back to Wisconsin to my old job of working at the Gulf gas station that I had before entering the service. I then worked at International Harvester truck company for 10 years, then I worked at another truck company Wisconsin Kenworth for 18 years. My wife and I moved to Arizona in June of 1996. I got a job working in a prison as a Corrections Officer in Tucson, AZ. Then my wife and I went to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department 7 week training academy and became Detention Officers working in their jails. After two years, I went from there to the City of Tempe AZ Jail as a Detention Officer and retired from there after 15 years. After battling cancer, I am happily retired going on 7 years. I got divorced in 2002 and am happily married to a wonderful woman for the last 15 years. Living every day to it's fullest.
