During his service, he lived in South Korea, Germany, and various states in the Union. After 12 years in the service, and three kids to raise, he left the Army and went to the University of Wyoming ( Go Cowboys!) to get a degree in Education.
In the fall of ’91, newly graduated with a Bachelor’s in Education, Karl got his first job in his new career as an educator here in Las Vegas, NV. NOt to go without a church, he did what many do back in the world before Google. he opened a phone book, found the closest Episcopal church, and they haven’t been able to get rid of him ever since. Going so far as to call him up to serve as their Deacon.
