SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Gus Szala

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.

http://exlibris.memphis.edu/resource/unclesam/forms.html
This page contains downloadable government electronic forms. Over the years, we have had requests for many of these, but they have never been available to depository libraries. This list is not comprehensive, but comprises those forms most asked for by the public. Many other agencies have quite specialized forms and should be accessed directly.

 

http://pleasenotifyme.org/nok/restricted/home.htm
The Next Of Kin Registry (NOKR) was established as a FREE tool for daily emergencies and national disasters. NOKR is an emergency contact system to help if you or your family member is missing, injured or deceased. NOKR provides the public a free proactive service to store emergency contacts, next of kin and vital medical information that would be critical to emergency response agencies. Stored information is only accessible via a secure area that is only accessible by emergency public trust agencies that have registered with NOKR.

Many political opinion pieces circulate with no identifying authorship or publication information, or with credits mistakenly attributing them to the wrong sources. In this section we attempt to set the record straight on those counts for some of the more widely-circulated pieces.
