Shortly after graduating from High School, he enlisted with the United States Air Force, where he was trained as an Air Traffic Controller. He was stationed in Germany, Rome, New York and Turkey.

In 1978, Bob was offered a position at the FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, as an Air Traffic Control Instructor, in Oklahoma City.
