After 12 years in the Marines, with some time in Vietnam, he retired and became a security agent in the Washington, D.C. area. He went back to Vietnam with USAID and was appointed a provincial representative in Chau Doc province. While delivering supplies near the end of his tour of duty, a truck Cistaro was traveling in struck a land mine. He survived but with serious injuries: two broken legs and a broken arm.
