When the chil­dren reached their teens, Carol re­turned to the work­force as a business an­a­lyst and trainer for United Ser­vices Life In­sur­ance Com­pany (USLICO) in Ar­ling­ton, Va.

Dur­ing their re­tire­ments, the cou­ple vol­un­teered for sev­eral years in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. They en­joy din­ing out reg­u­larly as well as trav­el­ing do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. The high­light of their trav­els was an 11-day va­ca­tion through­out Italy with their chil­dren and grand­chil­dren in Sept. 2014.
