Frank Spady — A proud Vietnam Vet and Las Vegas Businessman
Frank Spady has traveled the world since his beginnings in Denver, Colorado. At just a couple months old his family moved to San Diego. Growing up just blocks from the beach he spent countless days swimming, fishing, and surfing. He lived in San Diego till he went in the Army at 17 years old.
After getting out of the service his experiences in Korea and Vietnam played a major role in the rest of his life. His respect and support for the military is boundless.
The Army was the best thing that ever happened to me. I served in Korea and Vietnam. I was in the Infantry and a helicopter door gunner. Being in combat gives you a whole new outlook on life. From the rush of standing on the skids of a helicopter at amazing speeds to being scared to death–there is nothing in the world like it.
Frank Spady has lived in Las Vegas now for over 10 years. His past business endeavors included working for such companies as:
- Fairchild Semiconductors
