Cal was so eager to serve his country that he enlisted in The United States Army Air Force in 1945 at the age of 15. He was lucky enough to be able to attend photography school at Lowry Field, Colorado.
His first tour of duty as an aerial photographer was on the island of Guam in the 54th Air Weather Service known as the “Typhoon Trackers”, where they actually flew into the center of the typhoons to determine the direction and wind velocity so that they could warn the people in its path. He then spent a tour of duty on the island of Bermuda with the 53rd Air Weather Service known as the “Hurricane Hunters”, where they performed the same service. He served a total of 8 years in the Air Force.
Cal loved to ballroom dance with his beautiful wife, Natalie (Nell), his favorites were Swing and Jitterbug.
