He later served in Vietnam and his final active-duty assignment was doing maintenance work on Air Force One. His decorations included the Purple Heart. Mr. Caudell retired with the rank of Air Force Chief Master Sergeant.

From the late 1970s to the early 1990s, he worked as a civilian for the Navy Department moving and disposing of aging aircraft.
