He was paid a salary of $200 per month effective 1 May 1964. He was terminated on 26 August 1964 and was never used in a BKHERALD (CIA) sponsored mission. He had received training in Miami, as well as ISOMETRIC and MKCOSMOS. He volunteered and signed up for a paramilitary action in the Congo in September 1964.
