Tell me what you did in the military.

Most of the time I worked for the provost Marshall’s office which is kind of like the Sheriffs office.

Which branch?


I primarily typed reports, checked violations, processed tickets, and worked with the MPs (Military Police). I served on a task force where all four branches of the service traveled together.

Did the Tuskegee Airmen have an impact on your experience in the military?

I did not know about the Tuskegee Airmen until I got out of the military. I found out about them by meeting a few of the Tuskegee Airmen. From what I hear they didn’t lose any of the planes that they were guarding.

Did you see any combat?

No. We stayed in the jungle before the Vietnam war processing prisoner war camps. I got out right before that.
