His specialty was in ammunition and nuclear weapons.

"Thirty years of anything is a long time but the friendship that I've earned and I've got life-long friends that I'll always be able to count on and just doing something noble like serving in the military is something that I hold near and dear. It's part of my values," says Plagens.
