Glenn "Diesel",
From the time I arrived at the Washington Aqueduct to take my welding exam, you were helpful. Upon being employed at WAD, I thought I was bringing years of Navy experience welding, but the years you put in ahead of me showed I could still learn a thing or two. Thank you for all your knowledge, funny Aqueduct and life stories and of course the egg and cheese sandwich breakfast spot we used to frequent!!! Rest easy old man, we got it from here.
