Parachuted into Switzerland and was interned there. Escaped into France in October, 1944, made his way back to England and was returned home to the United States.

When the war ended he was flying C-54 Transport planes from California to the Central Pacific in the Air Transport Command. Went on inactive duty in March, 1946, and began a forty-three-year civilian career in Sales and Sales Management. Retired in 1989 as Vice-President of a Cleveland, Ohio consumer products company.
