Other Comments:
My USAF service took up a very short period of my life.  I earned a B.S. and Masters degrees, married and had a son, lost that son to cancer at age 15, held a career as a Juvenile Probation Officer, worked in retail logistics, acted in two independent films, sang baritone in choirs and performed many solo pieces as well, fished a lot, hunted some, and traveled some.  Even those events are just highlights of my 60+ years of life.  Retired early when physical limitations made it a necessity, and have built a small house in our piece of the northern Minnesota forest.
