My Journey Began in Iowa

As a child, we walked seven miles to see World War I aircraft
by Donald N.

I grew up in Iowa. As a child early in the Great Depression, my friends and I would often walk seven miles from Sioux City to Sergeant Bluff to see the airplanes used during World War I. I served in the Air Corps in World War II, and was trained as an airplane electrician. I served in the Pacific Theater from New Guinea to Ie Shima. After the War, I earned a degree at Northrop University, followed with 37 enjoyable years with Lockheed as a senior design specialist.
