60 Years of Civilians at Hill A.F.B

Ray Allred was among the first civilian airplane mechanics hired at Hill Air Force Base in the summer of 1941. Three months after being hired, Pearl Harbor was attacked and Ray had some more job security. Today civilian airplane mechanics, like the one below working on an A-10 make up the majority of the workforce of the states largest single site employer.
