I was also a Marine serving in Vietnam from 1965 to 1966 with 2/4 and 3/7. Before going to Camp Lejeune serving with 2/6 on a Mediterranean cruise. I started to join the Pennsylvania state police, but decided against it.
But in 1974 after being laid off from a job I said I would try the Buffalo municipal housing and from there after layoff I went the Federal Reserve for 22 years. I enjoyed it, but as in any job it has its ups and downs I have found that a lot of times it's not the job it's the people.
