Carl grew up in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and served in the United States Army Air Corps as a bombardier during WWII, earning the rank of Flight Officer. After his Army service, Carl used the GI Bill to study at UMASS-Amherst, married and had a long and successful career as a U.S. Steel salesman.
He later became a certified financial planner, beginning the second chapter of his life. At 70 years old, he got his pilot’s license and enjoyed 10 years of flying small airplanes, a testament to his sense of adventure. Carl was able to participate in the Leatherstocking Honor Flight a few years ago and was very moved by the Patriot Guard Riders escort.
