"Since it seems like we. We have conquered technology today. Finally thank you man. Now we're going to get near writing career for a bit but before you're writing career before your post military career. You're more than the battle we always. We always go way back way back to that. First time that you knew that the military is going to be the next phase of your life. And i say that in that way because especially with your generation. It wasn't always voluntary for you. When was that for you. When did you know the military next phase of your life. my grandfather Was in the italian calvary going back to nineteen hundred awhile. So many came to this country in In one thousand nine hundred two so you know so. There is some experience there but for myself. Of course that's time. I graduate high school. Nineteen sixty five and ended up going to college. I i was thinking. I was going to go into the military. I was fourth of four children. My brother and two sisters for in college. It's time which meant that. It was a there was a real financial struggle as far as being able to keep up for my father to sure to keep up with all these Tuition payments even though a map. You look at tuition payments today. Compared tuition payments. Then you know it looks like it has looks like a drop in the bucket ishbel. What what was it. Then at that point. Roughly when i started in September sixty five. It was thirty two hundred dollars a year is that might that might be four or five books. Now yeah it was You know it was just bell the last year of my daughters education at the university of puget sound. Okay no well. I'm in washington. I'm a native washington state. Okay all right that. I have a son and daughter-in-law two grandchildren up in seashore. Woolier if you that area. Yeah her tuition. Last year. i think was forty two thousand and she graduated in two thousand and seven. So i think knows what it is. Now yeah i. I'm sure other costa sixty thousand a year now. It's just incredible. How anyway going back sixty five. I told my father. I was going in. The military would didn't make any sense for me to Go into to be going to school. My father It's a very organized person. A basically very gentle a great personality and very seldom asked us to do anything for him You know he leaped in leading by example. And so you know there was not a lot of the Actually it was very little harsh discipline in household and It was more matter that you wanted to follow him because because just believed in So and it was one of the few things that he asked me to do. He said look. I want you to start college. And if it does not work out you can always go into the military so that was in nineteen sixty five. The reason why i started and i went to lafayette college in pennsylvania. By the time you got in to maybe sixty seven sixty seven and then into sixty eight things were things. Were coming apart throughout the country. I i had a lot of questions about what was going on. You know really probably wasn't until sixty eight that began watching what was going on In vietnam in the news The differences Also a lot of Riots going on at that time. That was kind of very parallel to. Its some of the things going on today. Sure it was a very formative time..
