For combat service he was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, Bronze Star (3) with “V” Device, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service and others. He retired from the Army after 20 years in 1984.
 
David then became accredited by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) in 1986. He worked as an anti-corrosion specialist and inspector throughout the United States and overseas until 2000. He established Texas Independent Coatings Inspectors, Inc. in 1986. 
 
David married Tempie Ann Green in 1998, after they had both reared a family, lived a full life, and had successful careers. They have lived in Timpson since 1999. David is a lifetime member of the VFW and the American Legion, and a contributing member of the Timpson Area Genealogical and Heritage Society.
