Mike was a very proud and strong man who had a great love for his family. He was extremely proud of his years in the service, as he was a Retired Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force. His discharge papers issued in September of 1983 reflected the kind of man he was, as he was awarded the Commendation Medal with Oak Leaf Clusters, Combat Medal Award, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Air Force Outstanding Unit Award and the Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Award among many other awards and accomplishments he achieved throughout his time in the service.
