In 1977, my neighbor
worked at Lockheed Martin Michoud on the Space Shuttle’s External Tank program.
When he found out I was a chemist and there was an opening in his department,
he insisted I interview for the job. It was the best thing I ever did. After 32
years at Lockheed Martin Michoud, I retired. The External Tank program was the
most exciting and challenging work I could ever want. But, the best was the
great co-workers and friends that I had over those 32 years.
