Michael Peterson’s Profession & Career

After graduating from Duke University, the United States government hired Peterson as an analyst.

Michaele used to research the Vietnam War before quickly enlisting in the marines. Michaele received the Purple Heart for his involvement in an automobile accident while serving in Vietnam, although he was later honorably discharged.
