Jr. served his country in the Army as a specialist and diesel mechanic. He received the National Defense Service Medal as well as the Good Conduct Medal before being honorably discharged after 2 years of service. On May 20, just before being discharged, Jr. married Stephanie. Upon returning home, Jr. and Stephanie built their home and raised their three children in Vinson.
