Jun.  1958  ---  Assigned to a Security Service Officers Intelligence Course, March AFB,   Riverside, CA.

Apr. 1959 ---    Hq 64tth Air Division, Pepperell AFB, St. John, Newfoundland.  As a Special  Security Officer, a liaison between the Local Commander and Security Service.  Our office was located in a vault, with a vault door as an entrance.

Side note.  As you will recall, at about the same time that we received our commissions, the Air Force announced a policy that it wanted all their officers to have  a college degree.  (Thus, the end of  OCS)  At that time, I had a year of college, so I began taking courses in the evening.

Jun. 1960 ---    With the closure of Pepperell AFB, I closed the Special Security Office there, and was transferred to McChord AFB, Tacoma, Washington, to oversee the construction of and subsequently operate a Special Security Office there. During this time, I enrolled in the Evening Division of the University of  Puget Sound  and continued courses.  In 1963, I applied for a Bootstrap  Assignment to the  University and completed my Bachelorís Degree.

Side note: I was still a Reserve Officer.  I applied for Regular but got no  response. So I had a separation date of December, 1971 to keep my eye on.

Jun. 1964 --- Transferred to 3rd Air Division, Guam, at another Special Security Office.   This was a two year tour, but since my family was there and liked the  Assignment, we extended  for another year.  I was trying to time it so that  when we returned to the States, there would not be enough time left for another overseas assignment.

Jun. 1967 --- Transferred to Security Service HQ at Kelly AFB, San Antonio. TX.  With my eye on my approaching retirement, I enrolled in evening graduate program at  St. Maryís University.  In the Fall of 1969, I applied for another Bootstrap  Assignment, and in  January, 1970, received my Masterís Degree.

Jun. 1970 --- I had never had a remote assignment and I was sure that I would be tapped for Vietnam.  But then an opening came up for Shemya,  Alaska, and I said Iíd take it!  So I spent a year at the tip of the Aleutian Islands while the family  remained in San Antonio.

Dec. 1971 --- Retired.
