The Galaxy, Still Flying Strong

My story begins in 1945 
by Donald M.

My father came to Marietta, Georgia, in 1945 to work at Bell Aircraft. Years later, this plant would become the home of Lockheed-Georgia Company. I was in the United States Air Force under General Curtis LeMay from 1956 through 1960. In April 1963, I joined Lockheed and was promoted to production assembly supervisor of the C-141 cab top. Later, I was body mate supervisor of the C-5A. From 1969 to 1973, 81 C-5As were delivered to Air Force bases. This was a great accomplishment by our team USA. (There’s a photo in the 15th anniversary management club book.) Now, over 40 years later, the Galaxy is still going strong.
