PERSONAL PATH OVER THE LAST FIFTY YEARS.
Upon graduating from NBHS went into the Air Force. Spent 3 years in Germany on a radar site. After discharged in 1964 I started at the University of Hartford at night, finally graduated with a EE degree in 1973. Fist job out was with Bendix ( Now know as Honeywell) out of Teterboro, NJ. Went to St. Louis for them in 1974 for six months to a year, to work on the F-15 Ground support equipment, (automatic test equipment). I never left, and retired in 1999 at the end of our program. Married twice, with two children from the first. A daughter who lives in San Francisco, and is a hospital administration at Stanford University Hospital. A son, a Major in the ARMY, who has given me my first grand child on August 25 2009.
WHICH NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL EVENTS HAVE MOST INFLUENCED/IMPACTED YOU SINCE HIGH SCHOOL?
9/11 is the most influenced event. It made American know what Europe has known for years, that we are at WAR. There is no appeasement with these people, they would rather kill you than look at you.
This is not a political war but a religious was, and they would gladly die for there beliefs.
WHAT PERSONAL EVENTS IMPACTED YOU THE MOST?
The birth of my two children and my grand child.
WHAT ARE YOUR GREATEST HOPES AND CONCERNS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS?
Today we are closer to nuclear inhalation then ever
before. Back in the cold war in the 60's Russia had a respect for life, and
knew that any war would end up in mutual inhalation. But with the radical Islamic,
and Jihad, they vow to kill us all, what ever it takes, and become a martyr
if needed. Once they have a nuclear weapon they will use it!
The problem is feather complicated in the fact that the current US Government is being run by a bunch of what can only be said is amateurs, who think that appeasement will solve to problems. Recall what that got for Jimmy Cater, once they sense weakness they go in for the kill.
In addition the current Congress and the president is driving us down the road to complete financial disaster with there socialistic programs! Read your history and see what this type of action did for Argentina in the 20's and where it is today.
I want my Grand children to grow up in a free and wealthy country.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO IN YOUR FUTURE?
I will work in the next year to make sure the we get ride of every one in congress who term is coming up. Then work the next two years to get rid of the rest. Corruption is the hall mark of this administration and need to be stopped.
WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIAL OR MOST OUTSTANDING MEMORIES FROM OUR YEARS AT NBHS?
I was long ago in a land far far away, I don't remember.
