However, I spent my entire carrer working for the Army, Navy and Air Force. Btw- I had the highest marks ever on the Connecticut Academy intelligence test. And I nearly broke the West Point fitness record. It was held by the WWII half back whose name I forgot- weak memory as well as weak eyes. Oh. I ended up going to college in NY where in 1959 I was the New York State javelin champion. I tell you this just to rub it in. Then in 1989 I was the 5th ranked race walker over 50 in the world, and got the Gold Medal in the 20K race walk at the World Veteran games. Mike- there is no comparison between you and me. You are a relative nothing whereas I have always been the best at everthing I tried to do, except for physics. While at Harvard, I found out that it's full of geniuses at least in the Physics dept. Still I got straight A's in my Doctor's program and won the Raytheon Fellowship which allowed me to go to school while getting a full time salary and tuition and books. So go crawl back into your hole.
