Glenn added:

I completed Battery Command at the Bristol, RI Nike Site in 1973 and went to the ADA Officers’ Advanced Course at Ft. Bliss, TX, followed by a tour with 1-43 ADA Nike Battalion in Anchorage, AK.  From there, I had various command, staff, instructor, and student assignments:  in the Pentagon’s Telecommunications Center (also completed an M.A. from Central Michigan University then in 1978); at Ft. Bliss Tactics Department; at the Armed Forces Joint Staff College in Norfolk, VA; in Heidelberg, Germany with NATO’s CENTAG HQ; at CGSC CAS3 Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas; and finally back to Ft. Bliss again with the Test & Experimentation Command—the old Air Defense Board.  (Prior to 1973:  I was in Basic Training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO; AIT & OCS at Ft. Sill, OK; then a Training Brigade at Ft. Benning, GA; on ADA “Dusters” in Phu Bai & Chu Lai, Vietnam; and at the 52nd ADA Brigade AADCP in Highlands, NJ.)  I retired with 24 years of active duty as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1992 and remain living in El Paso, TX with my wife of 30 years, Regina.  I’ve stayed busy and been involved with volunteer activities, much of it with the El Paso Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch Program, sponsoring Officer Students from other countries who take courses at Ft. Bliss, and learning more about the computer and its programs.
