    Mr. Pospeschil grew up in Southern Wisconsin and earned a MS in Economics from the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater.  Later, he earned a MA in Economics from the University of Chicago.  He retired as a Lt Colonel from the United States Air Force after holding positions as a supply officer, intelligence officer, computer programmer, systems analyst and nuclear war targeting planner.  After retiring, he worked over fifteen years as programmer, systems analyst, and project manager for Science Applications Inc (SAIC).  During these years his work was focused on supporting the nuclear war planning functions of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) and the Joint Strategic Target Planning Staff (JSTPS).

    After retiring for the second time, he and his wife moved to North East Wisconsin and the shore of Lake Michigan.  There he  travels and cruises with his wife, fishes for salmon and steelhead trout, refinishes wood boats, reads, carves wood and builds radio controlled model boats.  This programming project occupies many of his winter hours.  A few photos relating to his activities are provided below.
