*** EM3 - I was an electrician in the E-DIV and enjoyed the experience. My best buddy was and still is Artie Collins. We still keep in touch.
^^^ I retired in NOV-06 after 36 years as an electrician in LOCAL UNION # 3 in NYC. Being an electrician, I had the opportuniy to work for 16 years on Navy Ships in the old Brooklyn Navy Yard. The next 20 years involved working on printing presses, and in the construction industry. On 9-11-01 I happened to be working at the World Trade Center Tower Two, on the 53 floor, when Tower One was hit. I was able to reach the 30 floor when Tower Two was hit. I am one of thousands who were able to get out of the building and survie the attack. I am truly blessed and fortunate. My wife Dorthy and I went to our first reuion in Buffalo NY 2007 and had a great time. We are looking foward to this years reuion cruise. We are enjoying our retirement.
