Photo of me with Dad and friend one week before I was sworn in, Oct 1970

I joined the USAF in Oct, 1970 and was honorably discharged Oct, 1976.
Along with various TDY assignments I was stationed at
Ft.Meade, MD and Osan AFB, ROK (Republic of Korea).
I performed my duties in conjunction with the USAFSS
(Security Services) and NSA (National Security Agency).
I attended the Defense Language Institute (DLI) in Monterey,CA for 47 weeks ...
6 hrs per day M-F ... learning the Korean language
to be a Voice Processsing Specialist (Interpreter/Interrogator).
I then attended various tech schools.
I participated in water survival and mountain survival training courses.
Because my duties might have led to me being behind enemy lines
I also attended SERE at Fairchild AFB in Washington
Then due to the fact that my duties were classified as Top Secret
I remained at Fairchild AFB for training should I become a POW.

This pdf file tells about the USAFSS's history

I strongly suggest that anyone between the ages of 18 and 42
consider one of these careers:

Cryptologic Linguist

Go Army Linguist

CIA Foreign Languages
