When Rene joined the army air corp he wanted to learn airplane mechanics.Instead he ended up in the quartermaster corps at an airfield field in Texas and worked as a dispatcher in the motor pool. One of the hardest jobs of the motor pool and one that Rene often had to do was to drive the crash truck When a training plane went down.
Later Rene was sent to Hawaii and worked as a dispatcher at Hickham Field.

Rene was very active in the American Legion in Ridgefield and was in charge of organizing the Memorial Day parade in town for many years.
