Sent Direct Duty Assignment to Westover AFB Mass as a fuels specialist with no prior tech school training as many did under Project 100,000. Without knowing the dangers of Agent Orange herbicides, I was selected to handle, mix and power spray these herbicides as an additional duty besides refueling B52 bombers, KC135 refueling aircraft, fighters like the F4 Phantom, F106 Delta Dart, and many other fighter aircraft and cargo aircraft. I stayed in for the next 20 plus years going from base to base (22 in all) all over the world. I retired from active duty and came home to have to start all over again graduating from JCC in 1991 and SUNY Fredonia in 1993 amassing 305 semester hours of classes and four degrees. Going back to work for the Dept of Defense and the US Air Force for another 18 years serving overseas again for OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM AND OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM finally retiring in July 2004 because of Agent Orange diseases.
