I was a jet engine technician in the USAF. I retired in 1994 and could not find work. I was hired as an apprentice mechanic at a bag plant. Learned industrial maintenance using my knowledge of troubleshooting,tools and precision measuring. I learned how to weld,braze and cut metal and learned to use a milling machine and engine lathe. Two years later when the company went out of bussiness I found another industrial maintenance position and furthered my career knowledge in electrical field.
