Milestones are easy to capture, but remembering them all in this span of time, a little more difficult.
As a nod to BTHS, there was graduation in 1955 and an end to riding the bus from East New York.
Graduation from CCNY in 1960 and on to work as an ME at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Marriage to my best friend in 1961 and still enjoying that relationship. A change of jobs from the Navy to the Army at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey in 1962. Three children in the 60’s and family life was going strong.
Stayed at Picatinny until retirement in 2002 working nuclear weapons, project management, the new and improved howitzer system – Crusader. Marriages of the children and four grandchildren to follow.
Several years with SAIC working ammunition and then full retirement in 2006. A great grandchild in 2021 – life is good. After leaving NYC, several moves in NJ (Lake Parsippany, Rockaway, and Sparta), out to PA in the Poconos for a while, and then back to NJ (Forked River, exit 74 on the GSP) to a great retirement community, Sea Breeze. Much travelling (business and pleasure) in all those years to all 50 states and 21 countries. Still travelling, notably river cruises in the USA. We still have good health and are active.
AND to think it all started out at 29 Fort Greene Place. THANKS.
