Other Comments:

After retiring from the Army in 1991, I worked part-time at a Radio Shack in the Hampton Mall in Hampton Roads, VA. Moved from VA in 1993 to Gatlinburg, TN and lived and worked about six months for a Chalet Company. Moved from Gatlinburg in June 1993 to Cookeville, TN, and graduated from an Architectural Drafting School in Livingston TN, then moved to Dale Hollow Lake in Pickett County TN where for about ten years I ran my own Professional Photography business and also worked part-time at a local Funeral Home.  In 2004, I moved back to Scott County Tennessee where I was born and raised, in Norma to be exact, and for a few years I worked for FOUR OAKS FUNEERAL HOME before finally retiring for good.

Now, I'm loving retirement, and just trying to stay out of trouble!

Details Behind Award
Not sure of the exact award date but believe it was about this year +-.

I was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 502d Infantry, at Ft. Campbell, KY after returning from Korea on or about July 1980, and was involved with the Cuban Refugee Resettlement program under the Carter Administration. My Battalion was of QRF and we were mobilized to Fort McCoy, WI because the Cubans who were housed there awaiting resettlement were tearing up the barracks and tearing down the fences, trying to escape.
