Jack Joined Army Audit After College

Jack Joined Army Audit After College
After spending four years at Central Missouri State University and graduating Jack started his army audit career in St. Louis, Mo. In this photo Jack is standing beside his father Jewel Shipley.
But the Vietnam War was going on and Jack was drafted into the army. In this picture Jack is standing by his mother Reva Jackson in the southwest desert near Tucson while on army leave.
After serving in the army and being stationed in Fort Hood, Texas, and Ludwigsburg, Germany, Jack returned to Army Audit and spent a lot of time on the road doing audits. In the above photo Jack is standing by a totem pole on the campus of the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Here's Jack with one of his favorite cars of long ago, which
was a bright red Oldsmobile convertible.
They don't make cars like that anymore.
And they don't make husbands, fathers and grandfathers like Jack anymore.
Happy Birthday Jackie Lee Shipley!
Joann, Jennifer and Terry, Jeanine, and Little Jack Aidan hope you have a great birthday Saturday even though it may turn out to be one of the coldest birthdays that you have ever had in your entire life except for the snows of Alaska!

Hope you had a Happy Birthday Jack!

I remember the big red oldsmobile...from there to the little BMW--what a change!

I sure wouldn't have recognized the boy in the pictures until high school graduation--what a good looking guy!

Again, Happy Birthday.
