Clyde Woodfield
I worked at Army Times Publishing Company in DC until 5 July 1961 and then joined the US Army to avoid "the draft." Served as a Military Police Officer until 9 July 1975. My tours included Camp Peary, VA; Fort Wainwright, AK (missile site); West Point, NY; Vietnam (69-70); Fort Bragg, NC; and Fort Richardson, AK. Honorably discharged. Service awards included Bronze Star Medal, two Army Commendation Medals, four Good Conduct medals, National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service and Campaign medals, South Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, Civic Action Award, and Meritourious Unit Citation. Then back to Virginia where I was a Deputy Sheriff, and Airport Police Officer. In 1982, I began my Federal civilian career as a DoD Police Officer and became a DoD Security Inspector/Specialist, working in VA, MD, GA, GTMO, and NM. Retired as a GS-12 with 25 years service. Then worked security at Lake Montclair, VA and PFCU, Alexandria, VA. In 2003, we retired to NC. I have had many experiences I will never forget. I have an AA and a BA in Police Admin. & Criminology from Saint Leo College.
