He graduated from high school in 1953 from Blanchard, Iowa. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1954. His 26 year military career took him to many places in the United States and Europe. In addition, Calvin served three tours in Vietnam and two in Korea, four were combat tours. Upon retirement in 1980 he settled in Kansas City, Missouri with his wife Anita.

We rarely saw "Curly" but we all looked up to him. He was a dedicated, honorable man who walked tall, the straight and narrow, did right. Man, he surely set a good example worthy of emulation. When he spoke, we listened with great interest. I miss those days, back when men were men and ladies were ladies, and humor was actually funny. Jeff McMillen (2nd of the four J. McMillen brothers) Grandson of (by Grandma Ethel June's second marriage to...) Ellis "Rusty" Mullins of Blanchard, IA/MO, older brother to Calvin
