Espionage To Firefighting
Do you ever get an auditory hallucination of a needle bring dragged across a record when you're reading something and you hit a totally unexpected disconnect? This article will do that to you:
In 1951, Savage recalls meeting two men who took him to a nondescript location and presented him with an offer he couldn’t refuse. They offered him a job as a counterintelligence agent.Hey man, all I can say is: Don't mess with the Fire Board Commission. They will put your butt in a sling.
"They told me that they could offer me a career and all the education, adventure and travel, and money I could want. Of course I said yes," Savage said.
For over 20 years, Savage moved from country to country, not staying in one place for more than two years at a time, working as a "spy catcher."
"Espionage is a very serious business. It is a very dangerous job, being captured and capturing spies. But it was much more exciting than what you see on television."
Savage retired from counterintelligence in 1973, and began a career working on behalf of diversity.
