Egyptian-born L-28 member reflects on career

I came to America from Egypt in 1982 when I was 22, looking for a better life. My father-in-law, the late John A. Harmer Jr., a first-generation Boilermaker, encouraged me to join the trade. I worked closely with highly-skilled Boilermakers who patiently taught me everything I needed to know. Coming from another country and having to learn English was hard, and my first years in the trade were the toughest.
