In March of 1945, he was inducted into the U.S. Army for service in the Asiatic Pacific Campaign. On December 30, 1946, he was separated from the Army. Upon his release from the Army, Sie attended Oklahoma State University for a year and played on the football team. On December 24, 1947, he married his sweetheart Geraldine Fountain. Shortly after this, in 1951, he was recalled to active military service with the Air Force for service during the Korean War and was released in 1953.
Over the years Sie held many positions within the community. He managed a pool hall in his early married life, operated a bait stand, managed a Mobil Service Station, worked in the oil fields, obtained his Pastor's license, and was a bailiff for Judge Potter's Court at the Osage County Courthouse.
