I taught Red Cross swimming, diving, lifesaving, and was a life guard at Union City, Knightstown, and Greenfield pools during high school and college. I attended North Manchester College, Ball State University, and my Junior year was drafted by the U. S. Army. I trained Army Sentry Dogs and as a Security Sgt., I was responsible for the continuous training at the Indiana and Ohio missile bases. I retired after working 34 years in the CSX Transportation Railroad Police Dept.. I was a Lt., Captain, Division Chief, and President of the Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio, Railroad Police Associations. I was a member of the Ohio Chiefs Of Police, the Lucas, Seneca, Shelby, and Wood, County Sheriff’s Associations. I wrote a biography for my family and a novel which has yet to be published.
