Soon after he arrived in the states, Rudi was drafted into the U.S. Army as a German Citizen. He served in Vietnam for twenty months where he was a medic caring for the Vietnamese POW’s. Rudi always defended and protected those he was assigned to care for. After he returned to the U.S., he became a Licensed Vocational Nurse and in November 1969, a naturalized citizen of the United States of America. Throughout his military career, Rudi served in various locations around the world, and retired with over twenty years of military service. He worked with Civil Service as an LVN and lived for several years in Texas, working at different hospitals where he was needed. For the past twelve years, Rudi has lived in Middle Georgia and was very active in the community. He was a member of the American Legion, Post 24, where he was a former Vice Commander, the Houston County GOP, and an Auxiliary Member of the Middle Georgia Republican Women. He regularly attended Central Baptist Church in Warner Robins and was a consistent anonymous donor to the church’s Food Pantry.
