1959 .. Are you authorized for entry? 1960 .. in my 1959 Austin Healy Sprite
I left the Army in July 1961 I went back to my home in Detroit, got married
and went to work at General Motors as a press operator. In 1963 I worked
at the Ford warehouse. In 1966 I moved to Denver with my wife and two children.
Things did not work out and we moved back to Michigan in 1967. I went back
to the Ford company as a hi-lo driver and in 1978 became an apprentice
millwright. I was divorced in 1984 and a year later met Virginia through
a high school class reunion. We had dated back in high school. We were
married a year later. I retired from Ford in 2000 and now live in Tennessee.
My son is a doctor in North Carolina and my daughter is a teacher in Michigan.
Between Virginia and I, we have 9 grandchildren. I have been in the Tennessee
State Guard for 7 years with the rank of CWO-2.
