$3.99 price


I am seriously disabled WW II combat
infantryman that was left for dead in a
huge morgue and spent 1 1/2 years in the
hospital before I was discharged. After more
than 6 months I got a job with FAA as an
apprentice electronic technician, learned new
skills and eventually became an electronic
engineer. I managed the technical portion of
the Civil/Military air traffic control system
in Vietnam for 3-1/2 years during the War;
assisted in establishing a new FAA Regional
Office in Chicago; was project Engineer for 2
years installing a major aviation communication
project for all of South America; Managed 8 FA A Field Offices for 2 years and was
sent to FAA Headquarters in Washington DC to be Chief, FAA Air Navigation
Engineering Branch. After retiring from FAA I was Chief Telecommunications
Engineer for aviations with ICAO, a UN Organization in Botswana, in South Africa
for 2 years. I wrote the specifications, purchased and installed the required radio
communication equipment to provide communication between their airports. I also
developed an organization and started a training program so they would eventually
maintain the 747 class airport which was already under construction.
