He is a native Louisianian who enlisted in the Air Force Cadets for flight training at the start of World War II. He graduated as a commissioned pilot and flew combat in North Africa and the Mediterranean over Italy and Southern France. He was shot down on his 64th mission over Italy and was twice wounded when descending by parachute due to ground fire from the German troops. He was placed in a cadre of Germans going back to their homeland and held at the start of World War II in a prison camp for eight and a half months. Upon his return, he began his own business which he operated for 27 years and then retired at that time from finance and banking.
