He moved to United States in 1965, and having worked for CBS for six weeks, he joined the military in which he served as policeman in Saigon for ten months during the Vietnam War, and was eventually rewarded with the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service, despite not serving in combat. After discharge, he returned to CBS and continued working for them for the next three decades.
