75-year pin presented to L-40’s Reedy

L-40 BM-ST Mike Autry presents Herbert Reedy with his 75-year pin.

BROTHER HERBERT “H.H.” Reedy, also known as “A ‘Bear,” received his milestone 75-year pin from Local 40 (Elizabethtown, Kentucky) BM-ST Mike Autry January 24, 2020, commemorating the day 75 years earlier—to the date—that Reedy joined the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers at the Ingalls Shipyard in Biloxi, Mississippi. After a hiatus for a stint in the U.S. Army, Reedy also worked at a Boilermaker fabrication shop in Oklahoma before being called to field construction and taking a job on a blast furnace in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Reedy retired in 1987, but his reputation remains. “He was known for his desire to get it perfect,” says Autry.
