Comments: Now 87 years old, my interest in history is stimulated. I have never encountered but one person I served with. That was Bill Hand, we were together at NTTC Memphis and later he hired me with Westinghouse Aerospace and Defense, Baltimore. Now, I wonder if any I crossed paths with at Memphis, Mugu, North Island NAS, VF821, The Richard etc. still live.
