I am a second generation family from Yugoslavia. My grandparents came here not speaking a word of English and it was with them and 9 siblings that I enjoyed life and church living in Pittsburgh.  I attended University of Pittsburgh where I earned my PhD of internal medicine. I served my country through the Air Force under the Berry Plan and also studied Aerospace Medicine. I was a Base Surgeon with DASA from 1959-1972.
