Married in 6/1956 and leased my first gas station in 1960, spent 10 years there and got tired of cold winters. Spent 2 years working at Dept. Store and College. Moved to Florida in 1972 worked at a AC repairman for 2 years then leased another gas station, I was trained as an certified auto mechanic and ran a successful garage along with the gas for 23 years.

For the past 29 years I've been a field service engineer servicing medical xray and imaging equipment. The last 7 1/2 years have been with Fujifilm Medical Systems.

Usually I just tell folks I work for Fuji, and they say "oh they make good film" and even though what I do involves getting hospital xray departments to stop using film, I just agree and move on.

38 yrs with Dept of Defense, last 22 were in Defense Contracts checking up on all the "honest" Gov't Contractors. 4 yrs 3 months 28 days USMC 61-66, 16 yr break, joined Utah Army Guard f/10 yrs, finally got smart and went USAF Reserve, much better food. Activated in Sep 2001, 2 yrs at Dover AFB clearing Cargo and personnel for Air Transport. Last yr spent at Hill AFB on Active duty. Put out to pasture at the tender age of 60, did not want to retire.
BTW, in 1961 I was actually heading to join the Navy until this Marine Recruiter said "where you going son?" I replied, "I'm going to join the Navy", he said "come on in and let me tell you about the Marines", the rest is history. Even though I'm retired from the USAF, there is an old saying, Once A Marine, Always A Marine, Semper Fi, how true that is.
