Diman Alumni from 1950s

  • Henry (Archie) Archambault (email)

    Since graduation I was an electronics apprentice at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft from 1958-60. I joined the Air Force in 1960 and retired 28 years in 1988 as a Chief Master Sergeant. During my time in the service I earned my BS in Business from the U of Maryland; and my MS in Human Development Counseling from Peabody College at Vanderbilt University.

    I spent most of my time overseas: England (14+ years), a year in VietNam and Thailand and 2 years at the embassy in Kinshasa, Zaire (the former Belgian Congo and now Congo).

    Since I retired I have spent most of my time traveling through out the US and Canada, and have lived in Arkansas since 1997.

    Pictures submitted are one taken in 1997 and used as a GIF for Chat-Rooms, one taken in 1960 after I entered the Air Force, and one which was taken last year when I went to see the Red Sox Spring Training at Ft Myers, Florida.
