Ken Martin

Ken came to ZBTHS from Winthrop Harbor; then attended IL Institute of Technology, and received his MS from Central Michigan University. “Entered the Navy immediately after college and retired after 24 years of active duty. During the last 3 years was assigned as a faculty member at the Defense Institute of Security Asst. Mgmt. (DISAM) and, upon retirement in 1991, was hired as a civilian member of the faculty. Have been there ever since. DISAN is located at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton, OH. Finally met my wife, Pat, in 1973 while on a ship homeported in her home town of Charleston, SC. Both of us have seen a lot of the world, both while in the Navy and with my current job. We have two beautiful, grown daughters now on their own after completing college. Trisha is an attorney in Atlanta and Carrie is with the student housing affairs office at Marquette University in Milwaukee. For those who knew them, my parents are still very healthy now living in southern Illinois where my father was raised. The only advice I have for anyone is meet the love of your life right away and start the good life early. Make sure she is the right one though. I was lucky with this part.”
