Sebold served in the Marine Corps for 3 years. He joined on September 11, 1972 and was discharged on September 11, 1975. He spent his time of service state-side serving on the East Coast, and worked in corrections.
As a long-time member, Sebold joined American Legion Post 194 in Rising Sun, Maryland over 35 years ago. He is now a current member of Post 64 out of Okeechobee, FL.
