  1. I have a question for any oldtimers at Collins Radio….
    Does anyone remember a gentleman named Ray Huggins?
    Ray worked with Navy personel in the radio repair facility at NAS Cecil Field near Jacksonville Florida.
    He was my mentor on the ARC 27.
    Absolutely a great guy. Time period was 1956-57

I will make sure that everybody I work with at nordstroms knows what kind of company you are
