For most people, retiring before 40 seems like nothing more than wishful thinking – extreme wishful thinking. David Satterfield might be one of the few that did that and still went out and got a full-time job. The former Air Force Master Sergeant recently got hired to be the new Leadership Officer Training Corps (LOTC) instructor at Riverside Middle School after working for several months as a manager at a paper shredding company.
Born in Germany while his mother was enlisted in the Army, Satterfield would eventually go on to follow in his mother’s footsteps by enlisting in the military when he turned 18. “I just knew that I had to get a steady job to support my family and the military was the best option for me at that time,” said Satterfield. The former San Benito graduate had his first child before enlisting and in fact would later have one of his four daughters while stationed in Germany, and then another while stationed in Japan.
