I was employed at the Martin Marietta facility in Waterton, Colorado, for many years. The best of those years was in the finance department working for John Barun.
A co-worker named John Fasciani was planning his retirement in the mid-1970s. It was common knowledge that he had a lot of years with the company. How can this be? He's not that old. It turned out that he started with Martin Aircraft Company in Baltimore as a young boy delivering messages on his bicycle. He went on to college, and those young years on a bicycle were bridged for him and counted as years of service towards his retirement. Amazing!
