In 1951, Harold was drafted into the US Army and trained as a radio operator, serving his country during the Korean Conflict. He achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant at his discharge from the 7th Infantry Division in 1953.

Harold worked at the Heskett Station as Operations Superintendent, and at retirement had worked 43 years for MDU.
Harold spent his retirement caring for his beloved grandchildren. Most days the grandkids could be found out in the shop with Grandpa, tinkering on some project. When thanked for his chauffer and babysitting services, Grandpa Harold would quip that all he did was ‘supervise’.
