What are you doing now: Operations and Maintenance of Automated Baggage Handling Systems, Passenger Boarding Bridges, and Ground Support Equipment.I also worked six years in production plant maintenance at General Cable Company's Apparatus Division. Made telephone lift trucks, air dryers, generators. Left there to go try maintenance on conveyor systems and been doing it ever since.
Worst Moment Being transferred to Treasure Island for further assignment.
Other Memories I passed out while down in the hull and was sent to sick call to determine the cause. Being a borderline student I ended up spending night and day on site in the quonset huts for those of us behind in study. After passing out again in an oral board, it was determined I was not going to make it through the school and when interviewed by the CO was asked what I was going to do if I was assigned to a PBR. I had no idea at the time, but I certainly would have accepted the assignment and done what I had to do.
