Until 1970, Mr. Middleton served in Vietnam with Operation Dewey Cannon, and from 1970 to 1972, he was the notable sergeant E59 commission officer with the U.S. Marine Reserves.

For 20 years, from 1984 to 2005, he was a business consultant through a private practice. Mr. Middleton currently sits on the executive board of directors for the National Veterans Business Development Council and Broadhead Association.
