Anika & mia - siberian huskies

  • War Dogs member since 2012.
     

  • A native Wisconsinite, I was born in Milwaukee in 1947. In 1953 my family moved to Brookfield. I attended grade school in New Berlin and high school at Brookfield Central.
     

  • My first dog was a German Shepherd named, Lady. I’ve enjoyed dogs of various breeds ever since.
     

  • A Vietnam Veteran, I was drafted after high school and sent to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, for basic training. Fort Eustis, Virginia, provided advanced training. I served one tour in country from January 1968 to January 1969. Our unit followed the TET offensive from Saigon to I Corp.
     

  • Back home in the world, I worked for Inland Steel in electrical maintenance. The next thirty-five years I worked for Maintenance Service Co., a machine tool re-builder, as a machine tool retrofit electrician.
     

  • Retiring in 2013, I enjoy War Dogs, trap and skeet, camping at Wyalusing State Park, and yardwork.
