He was a graduate of Brown University and Texas Christian University, receiving a master’s degree in public administration. His calling to serve continued when Bob entered the Air Force in 1969. He flew combat missions in Vietnam and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor and the Meritorious Service Medal, and received other commendations for his dedication and bravery. Bob retired as a Colonel for the U.S. Air Force but stayed in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, continuing his patriotic duty by working for Homeland Security after 9/11.

Through his exceptional character, he was able to convey his love of flight along with the instilled values from his own military training and service.
