Although he expected to be put in the Corps of Engineers, he was sent through Advanced Infantry training after which he was sent to Korea. Upon arrival in Korea, he was assigned to the Post Exchange Service Company whose mission was to supply all goods to all PX's in the division. His initial mission was to design and supervise all construction in his compound. Due to winter weather in Korea, all construction was over in early December after which he became the PX manager and was the only PX manager in the Army not an officer.

Frank and his partner competed in a National Bridge competition while at Auburn, and they finished in the top 3 in the country. He continued his Bridge play until recently when he won a local Sr. event and also organized a weekly game at Oak Grove Inn. God blessed Frank with a very sharp mind and a sharp wit that everyone enjoyed. He was really a fun loving guy. He also was blessed with many life long friends that he spent alot of time with through the years. He enjoyed the Poundstone Sunday School class at First Baptist Church and enjoyed hearing Jay Wolf's messages each Sunday while he was still able to attend.
