A member of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, Mr. Medlin proudly served in the United States Air Force from 1950 to 1953. He was stationed during the Korean Conflict as a photographer in Denver, CO, Savannah, GA, and England. The highlight of his later years was a flight and visit to the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the Honor Flight Network.
Settling in L.A., CA after his military service, he attended the Art Center College of Design where he received a BA in Arts. He worked 4 years for Rocketdyne, a company that designed and manufactured rocket engines for NASA space shuttles. In 1961, he left Rocketdyne and became self-employed. While in California, he was a member and office holder in the Masonic Temple, an organization that was dear to his heart. After retiring, he moved to Lexington, to be near his sister and not far from his Hamlet, NC home place.
