My husband, William, started work at Martin Marietta on April 1, 1959. He worked full time and luckily was never laid off. He worked on Bull Pup for Joe Martin and worked in shipping for Joe Wheatley. He also worked in the remote area to pack explosives for the Patriot and Copperhead missiles. He was transferred to PNVS for the Apache. Our son, Michael, also worked at Martin Marietta for over seven years. William made many good friends while there. He retired in 1988.
