We dug back in our CSEA Time Capsule all the way to the Vietnam era, where this week’s #ThenVsNow member served in the U.S. Army from 1969 through 1975, stationed in Korea, north of the 38th parallel.
After serving his country, John came back to Connecticut where he was a Corrections Officer for 20 years at both the Bridgeport Prison and the Cheshire Complex until 1996, when he then went back to serve in the Army Reserves stateside where he earned the rank of Sargent First Class.
John is not only the proud President of Chapter 404 out of Waterbury, but also the Treasurer for the entire Council 400. We are very lucky to have him in those two roles, but he does so much more!
John is always willing to step up and help in whatever capacity we need. When we started our Phone Banking Program, John had never done anything like it before. That didn’t stop him from jumping in though—you can see him here on the phone recruiting a recent retiree to join CSEA. Thank you John for all that you do!
