Other Comments:
I retired from the AF in 1981, then went to work at Monarch Machine Tool Co. in Sidney, Ohio as a Field Service Rep. I worked my way up to Assistant Service Mgr. In 1995 I then accepted a position at Makino Inc. in Mason, OH as a Field Service Engineer. I retired from Makino in 2006. If there was a place I did not see while in the Air Force I saw it while working for the machine tool business. I met lots of interesting people, saw lots of interesting things, and visited many interesting places. In my civilian occupation, I traveled to Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Singapore, Japan, Denmark, and the Netherlands. My military travels took me to Panama, Venezuela, Costa Rico, Vietnam, England, Germany, Belgium, and Spain.
