Our Lockheed Past

It felt like community
by Chris D.

My grandfather worked at Lockheed before World War II as a crane operator (he owned the crane). My mother worked the swing shift when she was in high school. She started on the factory floor and worked her way up to an office position. In her last working years, she again worked at Lockheed and retired from the company (she is now 88). Oh, my dad had a hamburger stand across the street from the plant.
