He went on to serve three years in Yokosuka, Japan as a general dentist, during which he
deployed onboard the USS Tortuga in support of naval operations in the Pacific. Dr. Harkrider’s interest in root canals led him to the endodontic program at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School in Bethesda, MD.
