Veterans of All Foreign Wars Should Be Acknowledged

Document Actions
Some of your dads or grandfathers may have fought in World War II. Veterans of the Greatest Generation are dying off at a rate of 2000 per day. This link is to a song written for them. Open this link to hear a moving tribute with a montage of pictures of "old soldiers." FYI: Joe Markey, first manager of the FEP and field engineer for GE, is a WWII veteran. Other, sometimes forgotten, veterans will pass in future decades: Korea and Vietnam. Some of you FEP's may have served in either of these conflicts. Some may have lost fathers or brothers. Although I was never a soldier, I did install two GE frame 5 gas turbine package power plants in 1971 during that war north of Saigon in the small town of Tu Duc. So much for the deferment GE got me because they claimed I was an "important" start-up engineer. Vietnam was not a pleasant experience. Dave Lucier (FEP-1966)
