Working at the Michoud Assembly Facility was one of the most interesting times of my life. I was the traffic and shipping supervisor and was responsible for getting the production material in and out, as well as direct support of the mission in Florida. We made the external tank for the Space Shuttle. There were many long hours spent in this effort. The crowning glory for this job was seeing the first Shuttle lift off and knowing that I had one small part in the success of that program.
