Flying Boats and Flights to Space

Only World War II interrupted my husband’s career
by Cartha W.

My husband, Reese, started to work for the Glenn L. Martin Company in 1938. When he retired in 1994, Reese's work record was interrupted only by his military service in World War II. He worked on the JRM Mars, the M-130 Clipper and the Space Shuttle’s external tank. In 1983, Reese was a senior industrial engineer and estimator. He received a special commendation for supporting proposals that led to contract awards in excess of $100 million.
