Excerpted from the website:
- graduating from high school, I attended Milwaukee School of Engineering for one session and then enlisted in the US Air Force in January of 1966. I was stationed first at Lackland Air Force Base, TX for a few months and then Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi for most of the remainder of that year. In December, I was sent to Europe for my assignment. I was in Camp Guynemer near Fontainebleau, France for a few weeks and then transfered to Baraque de Fraiture, Belgium for a week. (This was to be my original assignment) My orders were changed so that I was sent to Maastricht, The Netherlands for the remainder of my 36-month tour of duty.
