With 2 years of college, I entered the Army as an E-3. I was given two M.O.S schooling, Fixed Station Technical Control and Autodin. The Autodin MOS required a Top Secret Security Clearance. Once the clearance was completed I was assigned to Munich and Augsburg, Germany. After that I was assigned to Ft. Detrick, Maryland outside of D.C. and working as a Technical Controller for numerous high security entities. During my time at Ft. Gordon, GA I fractured my neck. This has led me to many health problems, all neurological. I am now a disabled veteran. I served between 1980 and 1983
