War Service and Aftermath

From 1942 - 1946 he took a three and half year leave of absence to serve in the army, where he was eventually promoted to major. In an interview with the Flat Hat after his return, where he discusses his work as a prisoner interrogator, he stated, "The most surprising thing to me was the ease with which I got information from the prisoners— especially as the Americans began advancing! Although we felt hostility toward them because they were enemies, we regarded them as a bunch of sad sacks. There was very little hedging. The deserters were so eager to help that they were inaccurate and gave extra information."[2]. Later, along with Gordon B. Ringgold, he started a small program, the aim of which was to "give a small number of interested and qualified male students an opportunity to undertake research and analysis training which, along with a moderate amount of military training, will lead to commissions as second lieutenants in the Military Intelligence Reserve" [3].
