He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1959, retiring in 1981. In the Air Force, he attended the weather forecasting school and spent most of his career in space weather predictions. He served at the Air Force's Geophysics Labs (Hanscom Field, MA) for three years, followed by four years at the Air Force Global Weather Central’s Space Environmental department, where real-time reports from solar observatories around the world were received and the data used to forecast the effects of solar activity (e.g. solar flares and CMEs) on NASA-USAF near-Earth space missions and HF radio propagation.
