What Have You Done Since Nam
I got out of the Army and returned to my old job at Tinker AFB as a jet engine teardown worker. I re-enlisted in the Army in October, 1969 and stayed in until March, 1973. I again returned to Tinker AFB and started to college in September, 1973. I managed a music store, sold athletic goods to schools, built resophonic guitars and in 1978 went to work for Southwestern Bell (AT&T) as a salesman. I took an early retirement from AT&T in 1993 and moved back home to Oklahoma. I then worked for a high tech firm in Edmond Oklahoma for three years and another high tech firm, Gartner, for 10 years. I retired in 2006.
