(Harrisburg) -- Retired Lt. Col. Chris Cleaver has dedicated his life to serving in the military.

For 21 years, he worked as the spokesman for the Pennsylvania National Guard. He says his work was guided by the simple principle of telling the truth.

Cleaver speaks with witf's Craig Layne as part of our Beyond the Bio series.

The military man whose work has taken him to more than 30 countries and all 50 states says conversations he had as a young man inspired him to enroll in the Air Force ROTC at Bloomsburg University in Columbia County.
