    [Albert was a Cadet at Cornell (ROTC?) from 1914 to 1917. He enlisted in the U.S. Marines right after college graduation in 1917, and was assigned to Key West flight training school, however WWI ended prior to his completion. As did many soldiers at the time, he contracted the Spanish Flu while still enlisted in 1918, and spent a month in Ohio recovering (could have been why he was not shipped overseas). He then served in the reserves between 1918 and 1922, in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Syracuse and Atlanta, and finished with the rank of Gunnery Seargent. He worked in a Plainfield, NJ Creamery until a logging accident partially disabled his father, thereupon he returned home to help on the farm by 1920 and was married that same year. He continued with a successful farming career, taking after his father who had a farm machinery dealership and owned one of the first steam tractors in the area. Albert believed strongly in education, sending his children to the (better) neighboring Johnstown schools and supporting them all in their college educations. He later helped foster the Fonda-Fultonville Centralized School, crusading against some local rivalries.]
