He retired from the Navy as a Captain in 1982.His second career was with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) which is a United Nations specialized agency like the WHO, UNESCO, etc. Captain Schramm lived and worked in Geneva, Switzerland for seven years as a Senior Program Officer/UN Diplomat, and he retired from the UN in 1988.Captain Schramm's third career was as the Head of the Office of the National Ocean Service, which is a part of NOAA and located in Monterey.
