“As part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, two war experiences brought me to Europe. I was actively involved with German prisoners and in the reconstruction of France. My exposure to European culture as a Native American was one of the most influential in my life. It influenced my studies in philosophy and religion and my subsequent career in teaching and education. It was through being stationed in Paris that I met the woman I eventually married.”
