However, his military roots weren’t left too far behind him, because Robert was hired after graduation to serve as a metallurgist at a construction research laboratory. While there, he set up a corrosion research program for the Corps of Engineers and supervised the installation and use of their first scanning electron microscope (SEM), which is a type of microscope that scans the surfaces of objects to produce an image.

Over time, Robert always managed to find work that combined his two passions: metallurgy and serving his country. That’s when he established
