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.
