Carl proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War stationed in Germany. There he learned the skills of a marksman that he honed the remainder of his life. He passed on the love of the outdoors, hunting, trapping, and gardening to his family. He retired from a career as a heavy equipment/diesel mechanic.
