He was first stationed at McChord Air Force Base in Washington. The squadron was soon transferred to Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska, for the remainder of his four year service. He was honorably discharged in 1958. Bill then worked for his father building logging roads throughout the Pacific Northwest. While working in the Roseburg, Oregon, area, he bought a dump truck and hauled rock for the roads that his father built.
