Dad was the guy who put in the missile silos through out New Mexico. He was part of a design team. His experience with tooling and military got him in a bit further
From there we went to Las Vegas where he was bussed in for work... Area 51.
From what I grew up with I dont know what went on. From what I remember as an adult... there were things Dad was experimenting with... Meaning concepts
Interesting times, back then. I would love to get a look at Area 51.

My grandfather was one of the founders of Sandia Labs, and was heavily involved in the development of the A-bomb. I wish I knew him at an older age and could have asked about all this.He may not have answered my questions, though, he was a very private man. He died when I was about 11.
