 While at Westinghouse, East Pittsburgh plant, Ed was a tool and die maker, an essential skill during World War II, when he was drafted into the Army.  Stationed in Los Alamos, NM, he worked on the Manhattan Project in the development of the atomic bomb.  After the war ended, Ed received a letter of thanks from Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, Director of the Manhattan Project. Ed returned to Westinghouse where he retired as an Engineering Supervisor in 1977 after 38 years of service. Ed learned to play Bridge from a book that Helen gave him and he became a Life Master. In his retirement, Ed and Helen taught bridge on cruise ships and travelled extensively; their travels included 24 around-the-world cruises.
