contract to survey the site for
Camp LeJeune. He had to have

all those ten Fords. And so in the
drafting room, he said, ‘Charlie, come
in here.’ At that point I had the hood
up on one of those Fords and was
changing the spark plugs. Dad said,
‘Come in here and draw for me and
I’ll hire somebody to put those spark
plugs in.’ That’s how I started out.
