He later transferred to the Army and was injured fighting in The Battle Of The Bulge. He was also a M.P. at the Nuremburg Trials after the war. The war changed his life forever, becoming disabled from his injuries and losing his brother Robert, who was Missing In Action.

They drove to Alaska three times, the first in 1967, loading the family into a station wagon and pulling a travel trailer.
