Following undergraduate study at The University of North Carolina, Bruce went to the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas where it was determined that his knee injuries from football negated his intention to enter pre flight training. After a battery of examinations Bruce was selected to join the security service and was dispatched to Syracuse University for an intensive education in Russian language, history and culture. It was during this year that he received our nation’s highest security clearance and was assigned to highly classified intelligence duty.

Upon completion of his military obligation Bruce embarked on a career in organization management and become legislative affairs director for the Chamber of Commerce in Middletown, Ohio.

Following the defeat of Barry Goldwater, Bruce was asked to come to Washington where he headed The United Republicans of America and was instrumental in electing business oriented candidates to congress from districts in fifteen states. Encouraged by his friends to enter the political arena himself Bruce was elected magistrate in his native Virginia and during his term of office was appointed to the International Narcotic Officers Association, the Committee of Judges for the American Federation of Police and the Board of Directors of the National Council on Dangerous Drugs.
