Hank was a proud U.S. Navy Veteran of WWII serving on the USS Greene. After 43 years of civil service, he retired as the Superintendent of Fleet Technical Services at the Naval Air Engineering Center (NAEC) Lakehurst. Upon his retirement, he received the Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award, the highest service award that can be given to a civil service employee by the commanding officer.
