After two tours in VN, I resigned in March 1969 to get out of S. Alabama, S. Georgia, and S. Vietnam. We moved to the South Puget Sound Area and lived there since. Went to work part-time (through numerous strikes) for Northwest Airlines. The Army Reserve kept food on the table until 1979. During the next twenty years, I flew the B-727, B-707, DC-10, and B-747 for Northwest Airlines. I retired from the Army Reserve in 1991 as a colonel, and in 1999 as a captain on the 747. Id rather be a captain with a chicken in my lap than a colonel with an eagle on my shoulder. Since then, NanSea and I have spent our time playing tennis, skiing, and traveling.
