Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
When I returned to the US in '67, during the height of the Viet Nam war
build-up, I immediately re-enrlolled in college. During that time I got
married and have two chidren. They are now grown up and have children
of their own...I have a total of seven grandchildren. After graduating I
passed the licensing exam and have practiced architecture since 1975.
Most recently my career pursuits have lead me to an alternate career in
telecommunications. I've worked for: MCI designing and building
microwave facilities in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois; for AT&T designing and
erecting wireless base stations in both the Chicago Loop and downtown
Taipei, Taiwan. After returning again to the States I was hired by Sprint
PCS to manage wireless tower construction in northern Illinois,
north-western Pennsylvania and north-eastern Ohio. I now have an
opportunity to do the same type of work for a communications company
in Nigeria. This assignment is still pending but I am truly excited about
returning to beloved Africa to a location that is within a hundred miles of
my Peace Corps location over thirty-five years ago.
