Roger Dauffenbach became active with the PVA as a result of a cervical injury C-3 and an ambulatory member of the Nevada PVA, Reno District.

My Marine Corps career was December 3, 1963-December 1969. I was discharged from the Reserves with a rank of E4. In my past life I worked at the Palo Alto VA Hospital as a contract Perfusionist, running the heart lung machine during open heart surgery for 26 years.

After retirement I started the bank courier service for NV Security Bank in Reno. After five years, the bank decided it no longer needed my services and laid me off in March 2007. While working for the bank I took on a partner to start an engine install business.
