Comments

After graduation, I went to UT Knoxville for biochemistry, but was interrupted by a call to military service. Commissioned in the Air Force as a Medical Lab Officer, I was assigned to Alabama, Texas, California, Ohio. Met my wife in California, and was married 52 years. Came to Port Jervis to teach high school science, and am still here. Have been active in my local church, Masons, Gideons, several scientific organizations, Mensa, but NOT politics. I still enjoy being with family and friends, and trying to get them to appreciate all the great things we have accomplished in the South. Some of them are finally learning.
