In the fall of 1959 I accepted a job with the CIA after serving four years in the United States Air Force in communications. In 1960 I was reassigned to Turkey. Due to a family tragedy I returned to the United States after a few months in Turkey. Since the program in Turkey was being phased out due to the U-2 incident in Russia, I was reassigned back to Washington D.C. In 1961 I was reassigned to a two-year tour in Hawaii. In the fall of 1963 or 1964 I was sent back to Turkey on TDY to train two Air Force airmen in communications for the new project.
In 1964 I was assigned to Area 51. I was on TDY for a special project on the USS Ranger in 1964 and also on Midway Island. In 1966 I was reassigned to Los Angeles, California for two years and resigned from the CIA in 1068 and accepted a job in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
After working in Oak Ridge for one year, I decided to return to college and enrolled in the University of Tennessee and received a B.S. degree in 1971 and M.S. degree in 1974. I taught in high school from 1971 - 1977 and accepted a job with a community college. In 1980 I was offered a federal grant to attend the Ohio State University to work on a Ph.D. I completed the degree in 1982 and accepted a teaching position at Radford University, Radford, Virginia. I retired July 31, 2002 from Radford University as professor/associate dean in the College of Business and economics and moved to Knoxville, Tennessee.
