When Dick turned 21, He had two years in Junior College and had no idea what he would do with his life.  So, he joined the Marines.His related civilian occupation was a Surveyor.  He went through the Surveyors Apprenticeship program, worked as a journeyman, was appointed as a Union Business Representative and had
the opportunity to meet a lot of influential people who helped him in the various careers that he has had.
 He credits the discipline that he learned in the Marines with the success he has had at each step in his life.

To catch us, you have to be fast. To find us, you have to be smart.

To beat us, you have to be kidding.”
