When he was 21 he joined the U. S. Air Force, the army and navy wanted to make him an officer. After 6 months basic and tech school in Texas he was stationed in Weisbanden, Germany for 3 years. During that time he was a computer operator, computer programmer and helped the locals with their beer so that it did not go out-of-date. When his time was up in Germany, he only had 6 months to go, so the Air Force let him out early. He moved back to Glenview and lived with his parents. He got a job with A. C. Nielsen in the north side of Chicago. Again he was a computer operator, programmer and a system analyst. He and several others were transfer to Green Bay in 1969.
