Jerald "Jerry" Peet

Jerry Peet grew up in Alden, Iowa. After completing high school in 1966, he was drafted into the U.S. Army. After basic training he was sent to Fort Bliss, Texas for maintenance training on Nike missiles. He was sent to Alaska and stationed at Site Tare Nike Missile Site (A Battery A/2/562) near Fairbanks. He was responsible for the test systems on the missile guidance system. After Jerry left the Army, he went back to school for electronics to learn to work on TV and radios. After graduating, he realized being a TV/radio repairman was not going to be the most lucrative career, so he got a job developing electronics for the medical field which was an up and coming profession. He worked for a hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for over 26 years. Jerry is now retired.
