He will continue that love affair forever. Paul enlisted in the Navy at the age of 17, and did several tours in Vietnam after almost 11 years he transferred to the Coast Guard where in 1984, he retired with over 22 years of military service. It was then that he brought his family to Cheyenne to begin another career with AAFES, first managing the NCO club, then Class 6, before retiring from the Exchange.
