After leaving Berea in 1954 to attend the Virginia Military Institute, I graduated from there in '58 and then entered the Air Force where I spent 23 years in operations, administration, and then teaching (at the AF Academy). I retired in 1981 here in South Carolina where I spent the next 20 years in industry & teaching. I'm fully retired now (whatever that means) and my wife & I spend our time traveling and visiting our children and grandson in Alabama.
