Announcements

Darrell Lancaster proposed an idea to create a repository for retirees’ experiences and funny/interesting stories that later can be compiled into a collection and available for all to enjoy. We don’t want to lose these memories. Marv worked hard to create/activate a link for us to view these stories. After consulting with Raytheon External Communications a few guidelines were put in place including a password to access the stories. There are several there for your enjoyment already. Keep sending them in!
