I went to work to
work for Martin Marietta in 1961, right out of electronics school. I worked
on all the major contracts at that time, since most of them went through the environmental
and structures laboratory for testing where I worked. My starting salary was
$72 per week. I thought that was pretty good. I spent all my time working in environmental
laboratories until my retirement in 1998.
I enjoyed my time
with Lockheed Martin, and deciding to work there was the best decision I ever
made. It’s a great company to work for.
