SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:
He was born in 1930 in East Chicago, Indiana. Grew up on Lake Michigan . Hammond High School which has been demolished. He worked in a steel mill after high school. He worked in the 36” blooming mill where they hammer out slabs of hot steel.
After that stint he got drafted in 1951 and went into the service. He went into basic in… he forgot (it was Ft. Bliss). Went on to OCS in Texas and then on to Korea. After Korea he went to college at Perdue in 1959. After graduation he went on to California in the early ‘60’s to work for Lockheed as a buyer. He worked on both the F-101 and the U-2.
He lost his job at Lockheed after taking a 6 week vacation to Germany in 1963. He found a new job with a space company Space Technology Labs, now Northrop Grumman, and worked from them until 1991 when he retired.
Gus wanted to get out of California since the smog and people were terrible. He had an opportunity to come out to Buckley AFB and took it. Gus and Carolyn, his wife, were staying at the Broadmore in Colorado Springs one time and he said “We should move here” and she said yes. (someone in the crowd yelled out “you had to get her drunk before asking her to move here). They have not regretted a day of living here. He has been married to Carolyn for about 30 years.
In November of 1995, Gus was drafted into the club by Don Neeley (Don left shortly after that).
Program: No program this week so we asked Gus more questions to fill in.
