Pretty cool. I worked for AM General for 10 years before moving into advanced lighting. Most of the career was spent on the JLTV program.I am currently working for the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics. They are the company that builds submarines. I retired from the Navy in 2009 and it was really tough to find a job then. I took the chance on a company in Worcester, Massachusetts in their Quality department just to get something going. Figured I could get my foot in the door somewhere and then move on from there. I did that for about 4 years and then moved on to a company that specialized in valves and pumps for the defense industry. From there I got the offer from EB but they wanted me to move to Ohio. I happily complied and got to make really good money moving back home where it all started. Life has a funny way of working sometimes.
Retired---- Director of Highway Operations State of CT, Department of Transportation. Responsible for engineering, maintenance and operations of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems ) with 2 large operation centers. Items you see our our highways included variable message signing, cameras, speed detectors, traffic signal systems. It was a great time from 1980 to 2009 when I retired to be involved in the creation of technology for highways and arterials. Traveled the country as a rep. for CT on these technologies. Also on Governor's FEMA's task Force. Loved my job but loved sports collecting more. I'm still doing it. Will be reaching 70 this year. JimWe deal a lot with each other and never really know anything about each other. So that brings up the question, What does everybody do for a living? Since I asked the question I will start, I am a Regional Quality Manager for ADM(Archer Daniels Midland). DG
