I served in the U.S. Air Force in Vietnam from April 11, 1970 to April 11, 1971. I graduated from Penn State in 1968 and I was a member of the R.O.T.C. I flew the C7 Caribou during the war. I flew every day while I was on duty in Vietnam, delivering supplies and ammunition to the troops and sometimes bringing the bodies of dead American soldiers back to the base. I retired from the Air Force with the rank of full Captain.
