Vince began his service to his country and community in 1955 when he voluntarily accepted his draft into the United States Army and embarked on a personal growth experience that shaped him into the man he became. He lived with a true sense of purpose that comes from knowing he was a part of something larger than himself. Words like teamwork, patience, improvise, adapt, and overcome, became his mantra for life. Vince achieved the Rank of Staff Sergeant while in the service.

Throughout his banking career, Vince earned degrees from The American Institute of Banking, The Ohio Banker Consumer Credit School at Kent State University, the American Bankers Compliance School at Notre Dame, and the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin.
