The ten day temporary duty became his career after General Elbert DeCoursey, AFIP Director, asked him if he wanted to stay.

He became the chairman of Chemical Pathology Department in 1974 and he was promoted into the Senior Executive Service five years later. He served as registrar of the Former Prisoners of War Registry, an initiative of the Veteran's Administration to collect pathology specimens from these veterans to study the effects of their captivity as they aged. In 2001, he was involved in identifying materials in the anthrax spores sent to the U.S. Capital and other locations. He retired in 2004.
