Albert was one of the last Army draftee, he served as a psych technician. He then went into salvage diving all over the world and did some scuba instruction. Marrying late at 43 years old, one of his favorite stories was how he told his mother. Al decided to take an LPN course to work in the Dallas jail with multiple stories from that career. His last job was a driver for a large retirement community in Virginia Beach. He took the residents everywhere all the while telling them stories about his life. He told special jokes on Sunday while taking them to church. This job let him see and learn the history of the south. When he retired, his main job was mowing and taking care of the few chickens. He always maintained he wasn’t a farmer.
