Which plant does he work for ?
He was working out of a company in Chicago, but all they had him doing was developing plans for decommissioning nuclear plants. He wanted to be building them. He served six years in the Navy on a nuke submarine as a reactor operator.

He now is an Embassy Security Engineering Officer for the State Department. He travels from country to country, doing everything from "changing lightbulbs" (you'd be surprised at what some people will do to spy on us!) to some top secret stuff even he doesn't know about.

Very, very proud of him!

My day job is as an engineer for a company that has the contract with the Navy to build the nuclear equipment in the nuke plant on the boat your son served on. Lots of opportunities for someone with your son's background.

That's some well maintained equipment right there. Having worked in the electric utility industry, I know about the difficult requirements to become a nuclear reactor operator. His future is bright. Hopefully, this country will wise up and build some more nuclear generating units.

All my equipment gets a thorough cleaning and wax job in the fall. Tires get RV wheel covers put on, etc.

Did over 10 years working at nuclear plant as an engineer but sure wasn't as good as being a summer student working as a maintainer in mechanical maintenance shop. Skinny, low man and interested in actually working got me picked to get into all kinds of cool places.

Yeah , interesting work I’m sure. I am a Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor at VC Summer Nuclear Plant. My background is machining and light fabrication.
