After working at home in the family service station for nearly two years, he enlisted in the Army and trained as a Huey helicopter pilot.

He went into “hot” landing zones almost daily, but it was bad weather and mountainous terrain that led to a crash into a mountain side on December 14, 1970 that killed all five members of the crew.
