Walter then went to work for Herter's in Waseca for several years before moving into what would become his lifelong career with the US Post Office in Waseca. Walter and Joan enjoyed traveling to Oklahoma twice each year to visit family, as well as taking trips to Europe, Alaska, and many other points around the country.
