Journey Back in Time

We worked to deter nuclear war
by Ricky N.

I began my career in August 1970, working on the second-floor factory at the Waterton campus. Titan III was the new kid on the block. I remember looking at the factory floor, in wide-eyed amazement, at the rockets in various stages of assembly everywhere you looked. I remember my first company Christmas potluck, right inside the J-H stockroom. Everyone brought a dish and a 'bottle' for sharing adult beverages, even the floor supervisors attended. We all left full and happy. This was well before ethics, diversity and the political correctness that followed much later. We were all a team no matter what! Yes, those were the days.
