Aris was drafted into the Greek Army where he entered the Officers Academy of Corfu Island and graduated as a second Lieutenant in 1949.  In the early 1950’s Aris was sent to Korea with a Greek Battalion to serve with 15 other nations in the war against North Korea and China.  After the Armistice on July 27, 1953, and the replacement of McArthur, Aris chose not to re-enlist and left the army.

In 1954, Aris mailed applications to several American colleges and was offered seven scholarships.  He was advised to go to a small college and chose Southwestern in Winfield, Kansas.  After two years he took a scholarship at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.  Aris received his B.S.E. degree from Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi and later his Master’s Degree from Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi. He also attended other colleges during the summer to study mathematics and computers.

Aris taught school in Mississippi, Dodge City, Kansas, and Montana.  He also taught adult education and served as a teacher and chairman of the math department.  Aris last taught geometry in Greenwood, Mississippi, where he retired from teaching at the age of 77.
