My family and I escaped from Hungary in November 1956. We arrived into the US early December 1956. After a brief, ~ 3 years stay in Philadelphia, we moved to Hollywood California. I attended school and graduated for UCLA in Engineering. Following graduation I started to work for North American Aviation. My work experience included working on the Apollo Lunar program, the Space Shuttle, and other launch vehicle designs and operations. I am currently retired after ~ 45 years in the aerospace industry.
