A story about a man and his US Navy experience
Read about the flag on page 85
Dale was born in a farmhouse in Ohio in 1947. Within a year, his family moved to Illinois where he spent his grade school years on a farm. By the time, he became a teenager his family relocated to a small farming town. He attended the local high school where everyone knew everyone else. After high school graduation, he enrolled into an electronics school to learn radio and TV repair. Before completing school, he enlisted into the US Navy to avoid being drafted into the Army. These experiences inspired Dale to write “Million Dollar Experience.” During his navy days, he was an electronic technician and was exposed to computers for the first time.  

Upon completion of his military service, he returned to John Deere and became computer systems analysts. After four years in computers, he left John Deere to become a feed salesman in North East Iowa for Agri-King, Inc. Eight years later he became the Vice President of Sales at Maddy Nutrition Consulting Corp in Clinton, Iowa.  

During the years with those two companies, he continued to learn all he could about computers and programming. In the mid 1980’s, when the microcomputer was just getting started Dale opened a computer consulting business and serviced many businesses who were getting their first computers. One of his larger clients hired him to become their Executive Vice President, to handle the computer systems, and because of his sales background, manage the entire business.  

After 20 years as EVP Dale retired.  In retirement, he started organizing his many photographs taken throughout his life. Photography was Dale’s hobby and there were thousands of them. As he thought about the many stories that went along with pictures taken during his Navy days he started writing them down. The result is “Million Dollar Experience.”
