While waiting for assignment as a CIC Agent in Japan, I was placed in the Ft. Meade hospital because of cellulitis of my left ankle.

Recuerdo más vívido de la experiencia militar Thanks to the Japanese American National Museum, one memory has been preserved. In a montage at the JANM, there is a photograph of eighteen soldiers in the Drum and Bugle Corps at Ft. Snelling. I am one of those soldiers.
¿En lo personal, qué obtuvo de su experiencia militar? I served the United States in the US Army for twenty-five months, and this entitled me to the benefits of the GI Bill of Rights. This enabled me to graduate from Stanford University with a BS (Math, 1949) and MS (Math, 1951).
